Funding Research Into Neurological Disorders
Aside from the more recent and public Smile4Wessex Appeals, which focus on capital/equipment projects, the Wessex Neurological Centre Trust has been providing charitable support to deserving projects since 1983. For the most part, this has involved sponsoring research projects into neurological conditions, often providing the funding needed to ‘pump prime’ research that would not otherwise be undertaken. Such research projects have been conducted primarily at the Southampton University School of Medicine, or directly within the Wessex Neurological Centre, and have contributed greatly to advances in the care and treatment of patients.
Recent examples of research that has been or is being funded by the WNCT are contained in the following pages:
Predicting Secondary Stroke
The Brain Pulse Project
