Post-mortem brain examination is the only way to definitively diagnose many neuro-degenerative diseases

One donated brain provides resources for hundreds of research studies

All current research is based on preserved dead brain

Federally recognized 501(c)(3) devoted to improving healthcare


     The Problem

Most research on neurodegenerative and neurological diseases is done on mice. Our ability to cure diseases in humans is limited by our ability to access human brain tissue.

What is needed is a way for researchers to get access to sections of tissue from various subregions of the human brain with the cells still functioning.

    How We Help

Cure After Foundation enables people nearing end-of-life to donate their brains to this program.
We are developing the technology and operations infrastructure needed to stabilize and preserve brain tissue after death, allowing researchers to use the tissue to find cures for brain disorders.

What we’ll learn about the brain in the next century

In this imaginative talk, neuroengineer Sam Rodriques motivates the cause of Cure After while taking us on a thrilling tour of the next 100 years in brain science. He envisions innovations that may be the key to understanding and treating brain disease — like technologies to allow scientists to study the electrical activity of our neurons through access to functional brain tissue.
