The Edmond and Lily Safra Center (ELSC) invites you to personally participate in its ongoing, impressive achievements in brain research by joining its Brain Circle

Become Part of the Solution - Join the Brain Circle

Your membership in the Brain Circle will make you a partner in breaking research frontiers and in curing devastating neurological diseases; it will enable you to have an open dialogue with Center researchers who specialize in a variety of research areas, including dysfunctions and illnesses (such as Parkinson's disease, dyslexia, and stress, memory and movement disorders) on the one hand, and unraveling the operation of human senses such as vision, hearing and of creative pursuits, on the other hand.

BC members commit themselves to supporting ELSC with a minimum donation of €10,000 per year over the course of five years. These donations will support doctoral student fellowships in brain research, research activities at variousELSC laboratories (including the purchase of necessary state-of-the-art equipment), and interaction and collaboration with other top research centers via scientific meetings and international exchange programs.

The Brain Circle

ELSC members believe that only a circle of many brains can achieve vital breakthroughs in brain research. ELSC thus actively collaborates with research centers worldwide as well as with groups of enthusiastic friends and supporters who share the same dream of better understanding our brain and developing cures to brain-related diseases
