Our ability to shape the world comes down to moments like these.

$8 billion a year is spent on brain research, but the minimum cost of brain disease is one hundred times that.

Yet amazingly, unlocking the mysteries of the human brain has less to do with resources than it does their coordination. Because though there is science, it exists in many different silos.

There has never been a single organization that brings together the science, technology, financial resources and knowledge required to create an unprecedented understanding of brain disease.

Until now.

One Mind for Research's plan to work smarter and share resources through public and private partnerships has the power to help us make more progress on every brain disorder from schizophrenia to traumatic brain injury.

In the process, we will increase the investment in research by $1.5 billion each year for the next 10 years. And achieve a minimum 10% reduction in the cost of brain disease per year.

This is how neurological cures that once seemed beyond our reach begin to take shape.

When we’re all of one mind working toward the same goal, anything can be accomplished.
