Researchers will find the answers to important questions about the human brain across the lifespan and what goes wrong when a disease affects the brain. Progress and advancement in knowledge will lead to better treatments and prevention, but only if the brain is donated after death.
Most people understand the importance of organ donation and how it can save lives, but a brain donation is a special gift. A brain donation after death supports the health of the next generation—your children and grandchildren. The University of Miami Brain Endowment Bank™ provides the next of kin with a neuropathology report or brain autopsy. These reports provide a comprehensive look at the brain and helps answer many questions. Many family members find these reports provide important answers not only for their loved one, but for the family and their relatives.
