Brain Tissue Donors and Donation

The Mount Sinai NIH Brain and Tissue Repository (NBTR) focuses on aging, dementia, mental illness and schizophrenia, and also accepts donations and distributes brain specimens from all other persons. Postmortem brain tissues are generously donated to the NBTR by persons and family members who wish to contribute to research focused on gaining biomedical and neurobiological knowledge about the healthy brain and those affected by neurological and psychiatric disorders. The NBTR and all of the hundreds of researchers who have studied specimens provided by NBTR join in their deep gratitude, respect and appreciation of all visionaries who donate brain tissue for research as an act of true altruism.
