Brain & Behavior Research Foundation
Since 1987, we have awarded more than $380 million to fund more than 5,500 grants to more than 4,500 scientists around the world.
Our mission: The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation is committed to alleviating the suffering caused by mental illness by awarding grants that will lead to advances and breakthroughs in scientific research.
How we do it: 100% of your contributions for research are invested in our grants to scientists thanks to the generous support of two family foundations which cover our operating expenses. Our model encourages new and innovative research in that we are able to support new ideas from bottom up generated by scientists. The Foundation funds the most innovative ideas in neuroscience and psychiatry to better understand the causes and develop new ways to treat brain and behavior disorders. These illnesses include:
- attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- bipolar disorder
- borderline personality disorder (BPD)
- eating disorders
- obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
