How can I donate my brain tissue for medical research?

The Harvard Brain Tissue resource Center (HBTRC) collects human brain tissue for research. When a person with a psychiatric or neurological condition chooses to donate brain tissue after their death, researchers can conduct incredibly valuable genetic, molecular and genetic studies.  The HBTRC gratefully accepts brain tissue donations from people with and without neurological and psychiatric disorders. Visit their brain donation page for information.  

For general information, visit NAMI’s Participating in Research page.
