In the last year, COVID-19 has disrupted 92 grants 

Epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, tinnitus, stroke, brain injury – the research pool this year was huge. But then the pandemic happened. Experiments destroyed, schedules abandoned, and breakthroughs hidden away. While labs across the country sat empty, 1,000,000 Kiwis continued to be affected by neurological conditions – but without the hope of new treatments and cures that research provides.

Thanks to our supporters, we did what we could, providing researchers with extensions, wage subsidies, and working expenses. But time is precious, and that is one thing we couldn’t give. But now you can.

With restrictions lifting, it’s time to get researchers back to doing what they do best: gaining a greater understanding of neurological conditions, developing new treatment and prevention methods, and finding cures.

What the green light means to Kate

Kate Calder is a mum of a beautiful baby girl. She’s a wife, a sister, a friend, a colleague, a netballer, and a daughter. Kate also has epilepsy. She is one of the million Kiwis affected by a neurological condition, which made COVID-19 and the last few years even more complicated.

Kate's journey has had stops and starts, mirroring the experiences of researchers and scientists working to find causes, treatments and cures for the over 700 different types of conditions that can affect our brains and nervous systems. Over the past two years, COVID-19 has brought vital research that could help Kiwis like Kate to a halt.
