NRF Logo


The NeuroSurgical Research Foundation has been funding world-class research since 1963.

Neurosurgical research is used to treat and save the lives of children and adults living with life threatening medical conditions. Donations allow the funding of medical research into the cause, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease and injury of the brain, spine and nervous system.

Your support helps our researchers make life-changing discoveries and improves the lives of people diagnosed with conditions and diseases such as brain tumours, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, concussion, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, and paediatric disease.

Please donate to the NRF. Together we can make a difference. Your donations – our world-class research. Right here in South Australia. 100% of all donations go directly to research.

What types of research are being supported?

The key areas of research supported by the NRF are brain tumour, stroke, Parkinson's disease and traumatic brain injury.

Brain Tumour
As well as the 120 different types of brain tumour, research includes decreasing brain swelling, reducing tumour invasiveness and growth, and enhancements in treatment and quality of life to help people live longer and happier lives. Read more...

Stroke (inc. brain haemorrhage and aneurysms)
With over 72,000 Australians suffering from stroke every year, researchers are working to reduce their devastating impact and develop better surgical treatments. Read more...

Parkinson's Disease
While dementia is the second-leading cause of death in Australia and Parkinson's disease affects 1 in every 340 Australians, there is still no cure. With support, researchers can understand and slow down the progression of these conditions and are working to stop the neurodegeneration in head trauma caused by concussion. Read more...

Traumatic Brain Injury
Each year, around 60 million people worldwide suffer from traumatic brain injury (TBI), and researchers are working on ways to halt life-threatening brain swelling. There is also an urgent need for therapies to reduce the devastating disability caused by spinal cord injury after sporting or car accidents. Read more...
