A story from Doug and Pam Walter
Even if the work of the young researchers BRF supports comes too late to help our friends, we are confident that it will lead to better lives for many others in the future.
We believe that supporting talented young researchers at early and key phases of their careers is very important to the future of research into diseases and disorders of the nervous system. The new ideas and energy of these emerging researchers holds the promise of enhancing our understanding and ultimately treatment of currently intractable diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions. We have close friends who are suffering the ravages of these diseases, and we have seen how important new approaches are.
We also admire BRF’s professionalism and efficiency, especially its remarkably low operating expenses, which results in an extraordinarily high percentage of support going directly to support researchers.
