Donate Tissue

Researchers need to study the brain and spinal cord tissue from people with different MS subtypes and disease stages to find out how and why demyelination occurs. Researchers also need to study brain and spinal cord tissue to develop ways of repairing and preventing tissue damage.

Donating your brain to the MS Research Australia Brain Bank after your death will:

  •  help researchers find diagnostic markers for early detection
  •  help researchers develop better treatments
  •  help researchers discover possible cures and prevention measures for MS

The MS Research Australia Brain Bank strongly encourages everyone in Australia who has been diagnosed with MS to register as a Brain Donor for MS research.
