Why is your donation so important?

QBI researchers are dedicated to unlocking the mysteries of the many neurodegenerative diseases and mental health disorders which currently account for a staggering 45 per cent of the burden of disease in Australia.

Support QBI today and help researchers to understand the fundamental mechanisms that regulate brain function. 

Fundamental research provides essential information that science needs to unravel the burgeoning incidence of neurological disease in our community. Research is essential to better understand and treat conditions such as dementia, stroke, motor neuron disease, multiple sclerosis and neurotrauma, including spinal cord injury.

Your support can help us unlock the secrets of brain repair and make a world of difference to future patients of these devastating diseases. Current fundraising initiatives include fundamental research (all laboratories within QBI) and specific research in:

  • ADHD
  • Autism
  • Brain tumour
  • Dementia
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Motor neuron disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Neurotrauma (Spinal Cord Injury)
  • Schizophrenia
  • Stroke

How can you support vital brain research at QBI?
