Please help turn the world around for 1 in 3 Kiwis

Right here in New Zealand, brilliant researchers are on the verge of groundbreaking discoveries. With the rapid evolution of technology, we stand on the brink of uncovering better treatments, preventive measures, and even cures for debilitating conditions. The key to unlocking these scientific breakthroughs? Your support. 

Be the catalyst for change 

Despite the wealth of talent, health research in NZ remains underfunded, with a mere 0.7% of healthcare costs allocated to research. We can change this narrative. Your contribution will propel these researchers forward, removing the financial barrier standing in the way of progress. Will you help create a better future?

Turning the world around - one incredible piece of research at a time

Could a bioelectronic implant hold the key to treating spinal cord injury? Dr Bruce Harland is testing several promising regenerative treatments. “This exciting preclinical research was made possible through a Neurological Foundation project that allowed me to develop the use of this technology from basic science.”   

Dr Hannah Jones, a consultant paediatric neurologist at Starship hospital, is working hard to improve outcomes for babies and children with neurological disorders caused by inflammation or autoimmunity. “I’m very grateful for the Neurological Foundation’s support.”  

Could epigenomics be used to diagnose Parkinson’s disease earlier, so that people can be treated sooner? Dr Sophie Farrow is working with the Oxford Parkinson’s Disease Centre discovery cohort at the University of Oxford to investigate the possibilities. “The initial small project grant that I received from the Neurological Foundation enabled me to develop some of the fundamental skills that I need to complete this next project. Thank you!”

World-class neurological research

Each year, we fund approximately $5 million worth of neurological research. This is research that has the potential to change lives.

NZ-wide education

We host a range of events to educate Kiwis and raise awareness. Our free Headlines magazine contains all the latest neurological news, which goes to more than 20,000 Kiwi households four times a year.

Neurological Foundation
Human Brain

We fund New Zealand's only Human Brain Bank, providing precious brain tissue as a vital resource for researchers throughout the country and around the world.

Neurological Foundation
Chair of Clinical Neurology

Since 2008 we've funded the Neurological Foundation Chair of Clinical Neurology, a position that's made immense impact for Kiwis with stroke.
