The recipients express their gratitude for the grants that assisted them in getting their research off the ground much faster than they would otherwise have without the funds.

The seed funds allowed them to collect data and submit applications to the NIMH.

The grants enabled them to collect evidence for their ideas and to push forward with the research they hoped to achieve.

They expressed the value of having a foundation that could decide how they would like to allocate the funds and that it benefited the scientists.

The interviewed researchers expressed their gratitude to the foundation for assisting them with the funding and the ability to execute the research and the projects they wanted to work on. In addition, the BRF allows a broad spectrum of related conditions to be funded.

It is evident that the seed grants have been put to excellent use and have resulted in a plethora of information. It will continue to propel the research of scientists in further discoveries. As Science is an ever-evolving study, there is no end to the research and, thus, the findings, all of which will allow for deeper insight and understanding and the ability to treat conditions much faster. This should result in earlier interventions, less invasive treatments, and potential cures.

As Science and the brain appear to be a bottomless minefield, this indicates the ongoing pursuit of research. This is only possible with funds. Thus, the BRF appeals to the generosity of its philanthropic donors to continue contributing and encouraging others to do the same. While we do not want to contemplate the thought, we could one day be the direct recipients of the outcome of the research done today.
