With Auckland's growing population and the increase of brain disorders like stroke as well as traumatic brain injuries, it is vital to advance neurosurgical treatments and progress the options for those living with brain disorders. Linking the research excellence of the Centre for Brain Research and the neurosurgical expertise at Auckland City Hospital will provide the opportunity to develop exciting new treatments.

The University of Auckland, in partnership with the Neurological Foundation of New Zealand, is launching an $8million fundraising campaign to endow the inaugural Chair of Neurosurgery in perpetuity. The fund will support a Professor of Neurosurgery, a Senior Research Fellow and provide administrative support.
