About your Good Cause
Currently 1 in 6 people suffer from diseases of the brain and there is an expectation that with an ageing population brain conditions will be a ticking time bomb.
Professor Selby who helped write the case for the new Yorkshire Brain Research Centre said, "As the population gets older, there will be significant increase in brain conditions in Yorkshire in the near future. To have a centre of excellence for brain research at Leeds means that patients do not have to travel out of the county. The Centre will conduct research for patient benefit and will help Yorkshire scientists find new treatments and drug therapies as well as conduct clinical trials.
Dr Helen Ford, Consultant Neurologist said "This is an exciting time for brain research with many new discoveries in treatments for neurological conditions. The Yorkshire Brain Research Centre will help attract the very best clinicians from around the world to train and study at Leeds and grow a strong neurosciences community for the benefit of patients in Yorkshire and beyond.
