The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation (BBRF) is committed to alleviating the suffering caused by mental illness by awarding grants that will lead to advances and breakthroughs in scientific research.

100% of every dollar donated for research is invested in our research grants. Our operating expenses are covered by separate foundation grants.

Our model encourages new and innovative research in that we are able to support new ideas from bottom up generated by scientists.

We only fund scientists whose research is reviewed and recommended by our all-volunteer, world-renowned Scientific Council representing every major discipline in brain and behavior research.
