Yorkshire Brain Research Centre

Clair Challenor-Chadwick, MD of Cause UK has been working since the summer this year with the Leeds Teaching Hospitals Charitable Foundation to launch a new £2m fundraising appeal to create a Yorkshire Brain Research Centre in Leeds to tackle Epilepsy, Parkinson’s, MS and Dementia.  The centre will create clinical trials for Yorkshire patients and pay for research which is the last medical frontier for scientists.  Clair says ‘ more and more people are surviving cancer and heart disease, with an ageing population it is expected that there will be a tsunami of brain conditions and Yorkshire needs to be ready to respond.’ See www.ybrc.org.uk for more information about the appeal.
