Support Our Research

We do experimental neuroscience research with the mission of improving preservation quality in brain banking and brain preservation procedures. We rely upon donations to perform our research.

Any donation you can provide, regardless of size, is very much appreciated.

Apex Neuroscience is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are tax-deductible in the United States to the extent allowed by law.

Matching Gifts

Many employers offer matching gift programs that can double your donation. If you work at a company with an HR department, you can check to see if they offer this benefit and maximize your impact.

Donor Privacy

Your privacy is our priority. We collect minimal personal information, which is kept confidential and used solely for internal purposes. We do not share or sell your information with any outside parties.

Current Research Areas

At Apex Neuroscience, our work centers around research projects that further our mission as a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Apex Neuroscience will make the ultimate decision on how to use any contributions for purposes consistent with our mission. Currently, donations do not go to pay the salary of any employees. Instead, any generous contributions you are able to provide will be used primarily to fund research services provided by third parties, such as microscopy services. We have two major focus areas:

Krassner et al. 2023
McKenzie et al. 2022

Preservation Quality Evaluation

We spend funds on services for assessing brain structural preservation, including high-resolution imaging techniques like volume electron microscopy or biomolecular imaging.

Anatomical Gift Coordination

We spend funds on coordinating anatomical donations to validate our preservation techniques on an expanded sample of human brains. We think this is essential because too often techniques work in animal models but not reliably in humans.

Our Current Funding Status

We are currently funding limited in our ability to perform electron microscopy profiling of preserved brain tissue. As a result, we are unsure of how current preservation methods affect brain tissue ultrastructure. If you would like more information on our current projects and how we could deploy additional funding, please contact us.

Key Donor Recognition
