The Cambridge Brain Bank

The Cambridge Brain Bank was established in 1975 to provide a source of tissue for research into neurodegenerative disorders such as dementia, motor neurone disease, Huntington’s disease, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease.

Post-mortem brain donation is essential to aid in our understanding of the causes of these disorders and to develop more effective diagnostic tools and treatments for these conditions.

We would like to encourage people with or without neurological conditions to consider donation brain tissue at the time of their death and register with the Cambridge Brain Bank. Normal (control) brains from people without neurological conditions are invaluable in helping find the possible causes of neurological diseases.

More information about the vital research the Brain Bank supports and the process of brain donation can be found at this link.

The Cambridge Brain Bank is open Monday–Friday 09.00am–5.30pm
