Brain Donation

CHeBA has an established brain tissue donation program which operates in collaboration with the Sydney Brain Bank (part of the Australian Brain Bank Network). Research participants are asked whether they would consider bequeathing their brain tissue for medical research – similar to people donating tissue for organ transplants. We hope that once enough tissue is collected we will be able to identify the features and changes in brain tissue which underlie brain-ageing and the onset of dementia.

In the event of your loved one’s passing, call our Brain Donation Hotline as soon as possible on (02) 8936 1100 and ask for the Brain Donation Liaison Officer to be paged.

Participants in any of the CHeBA studies (MAS, OATS, SCS) can request more information or sign up to the program by simply contacting the study with which they are involved:

•  Sydney Memory and Ageing Study: (02) 9385 0425
•  Older Australian Twins Study: 1800 81 8946
•  Sydney Centenarian Study: (02) 9385 0433

 

Anyone else interested in brain donation can request more information directly from the Sydney Brain Bank:
