Brain Donation for Research

BRAIN UK is not involved in the process of donation. 

If you wish to donate your brain after death (and any associated relevant tissues), your first point of contact should be your clinical care team.  In addition, your local bereavement centre or service may be able to help you with this.  If you would like further information about brain donation, the following websites provide advice/guidance about the process:

HTA (Human Tissue Authority) website: https://www.hta.gov.uk/guidance-public/brain-donation

MRC (Medical Research Council) website: https://www.mrc.ac.uk/research/facilities-and-resources-for-researchers/brain-banks/donating-brain-and-spinal-cord-tissue/
