The St Vincent’s Neurology and Neurosciences Department treats people with brain, spinal cord, nerve and muscle conditions.
To further the care provided by this department, the Foundation helped establish the Peter Duncan Neurosciences Research Unit in 2011. A team of talented scientists, under the direction of Professor Bruce Brew, work tirelessly to better understand neurological diseases and uncover new ways that may help alleviate patients suffering these diseases.
The Unit runs clinical trials with human volunteers to explore deep brain stimulation, adult stem cell implementation and the treatment of Parkinson’s and other movement disorders. This life-saving work will result in lessening patients’ suffering and ultimately alleviate the distress of families with afflicted loved ones.
We need your help to continue this ground-breaking, internationally-renowned research.
