The Krembil Neuroscience Centre
The brain and nervous system – and the structures that support and protect them – are among the most complex in our bodies. The nervous system governs our memories, intelligence, feelings, movements and sensations. Loss or impairment of any one of these essential functions is devastating.
An estimated six million Canadians suffer from progressive neurological conditions and debilitating brain injuries and disorders, which seriously impact quality of life.
The Krembil Neuroscience Centre (KNC) is an internationally recognized leader in treating diseases and injuries that affect the brain, nervous system and spine.
Providing comprehensive care across the continuum – from prevention, intervention, long-term management, outreach, and linkages to community providers – our program’s major areas of focus are:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Brain Tumours
- Spinal Cord Injuries
KNC has advanced revolutionary treatments for Parkinson’s Disease and depression using Deep
Brain Stimulation. KNC is home to Ontario’s only Gamma Knife radiosurgery facility that treats difficult-to-reach brain tumours and lesions non-invasively. KNC is at the forefront of research to restore movement and sensation following spinal cord injuries.
Support from our donors helps make these discoveries possible. But this is just the beginning.
More than 30,000 patients and their families count on us every year to find the answers to some of the most complex medical challenges.
The $200 million Brain Campaign will help us continue our mission of discovery. But we need your help to get there.
Opportunities to support the Krembil Neuroscience Centre include investing in capital projects such as renovations to facilities and the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment. Or you can support our researchers and educators through endowed Chairs, Fellowships and other research funds. Your gift will have a direct impact on programs that improve patients’ lives.
