The Brain Circle UK is a British Charity dedicated to supporting education and research aimed at unlocking the mysteries of the Brain.
In 2009, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem inaugurated the Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences (ELSC), building upon its acknowledged excellence in neuroscience research. Today ELSC students, scientists and physicians are eagerly embracing the challenge of deciphering exactly how the brain governs all aspects of our lives and they have become known worldwide for their signature approach and some trailblazing accomplishments. In just a few years they have become known as one of the world's leading Centers in the field and are advancing brain research to an entirely new level. There is no doubt their work will be vital to the quality of life of millions of people around the globe.
We at the Brain Circle UK have made it our mission to support and provide financial and material assistance to ELSC, aiming to help:
Advance global brain research towards a comprehensive understanding of the brain
Educate a new “renaissance" generation of scientists by providing scholarships to students in ELSC's unique PhD Program
Provide the intellectual and physical environment that is essential for neuroscientists to flourish
Promote scientific collaborations with British scientific institutions
