Support the Michigan Brain Bank

The Michigan Brain Bank (MBB) is working to connect participants, families, scientists and clinicians through brain donation and autopsy services. Our goal is to contribute to research in Alzheimer's disease, ALS, Parkinson's disease, Ataxia, bipolar disorder, Huntington's disease and other related movement disorders through the procurement, storage and distribution of brain tissues. In recent years, the Michigan Brain Bank has increased participant enrollment, improved resources available to researchers, and collaborated on research projects across the country. Michigan Brain Bank collaborations have contributed to research and lead to publications in prestigious medical journals, such as Neurology, Neurobiology of Disease, and the Journal of American Medical Association. 

With your support, the Michigan Brain Bank can continue to make a difference!
