If you are looking for a way to make a difference, for a way to fight back against diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, then please partner with us in our mission. Researchers and physicians in the University of Florida’s Center for Translational Research in Neurodegenerative Disease (CTRND) make progress every day in understanding and treating conditions affecting the brain and nervous system. The work of these dedicated physicians and scientists is greatly enhanced and sustained through private philanthropy.

Gifts can be made via credit card, check, transfers of stock, real estate, or planned gifts such as wills, trusts and annuities. You may also donate online via our secure website.

For information on philanthropic opportunities in the CTRND, please contact Stephen A. Figueroa, at 352-273-7986. Contributions can be mailed to PO Box 100243, Gainesville, FL  32610 (checks made payable to UF Foundation, with “CTRND- neuroscience” on the memo line).

Become a Brain Donor

We hope that many people who understand the importance of research are able to help future research efforts by agreeing to donate their brain after they die. The generous gift of brain donation helps researchers to understand the disease changes and determine effectiveness of therapies on the disease process.This allows people to contribute for many years after their death.

Hand shows the brain in the sun and sky.
