Local brain bank receives first donations of brains for research

Brain Bank Singapore celebrates the generosity of all Brain Bank Singapore donors and remembers the selfless and precious gift of tissue donation that deceased donors have pledged to medical research.

Brain Bank Singapore, a partnership between NTU Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, National Neuroscience Institute, and National Healthcare Group (NHG), has received its first donations of brains this year.

The one-year-old centre is still in its early stage of donor recruitment with 71 registered names. Having a brain bank in Singapore is critical as the genetic background of brain tissues supplied by European and American tissue collections is not the same as the Asian genetics.
