Funding world-class research

Information for Researchers

The American Brain Foundation promotes and invests in research across the whole spectrum of brain disease. We believe that when we cure one of these diseases, we will cure many.

Crowdfund for Cures

The American Brain Foundation has developed the world’s first neuroscience crowdfunding platform—bringing researchers and donors together to campaign for brain disease research. Any neuroscience research project that contributes to our mission of curing brain disease is eligible for listing on the crowdfunding platform.

Technology & Innovation

Next-Generation Research Grants

We continually invest in a broad range of innovative research projects and in new generations of investigative researchers. Our relationship with the American Academy of Neurology allows us access to the best and brightest minds to source the most high-risk and high-reward research.

The American Brain Foundation has provided $27 million to 244 researchers. More than 75% of these researchers have secured NIH funding and developed lifelong research careers.
