Make a donation

Private donations have a profound impact on scientific research. They can, for instance, fund a new piece of equipment, a collaborative visit to another lab, or a pilot study. Importantly, they often act as leverage in funding applications that the researchers subsequently make to charities and government agencies.

All money donated will directly benefit the Euan MacDonald Centre, and any amount, no matter how small, is most welcome. Every gift takes us a step closer to finding treatments that can slow, stop or reverse the effects of neurodegenerative diseases. Thank you!

Please contact Kerry Mackay for more information.
