Our Research Partners

A Cerebra we work with leading international research experts at universities across the UK and in Europe. Forging partnerships with pioneers in their field is key to the research-driven solutions and services we provide.

We aim to approach, fund and help to develop research in a unique way that can improve the quality of life for children with neurodevelopmental conditions and their families.

University of Barcelona

This research group’s main strategic objective is to identify brain injury biomarkers (indicators) in perinatal life (the first weeks of life) that would allow the team to define measures for early intervention. This would potentially benefit thousands of families across Europe every year.

Cardiff University

We have forged a partnership with Cardiff University to improve services for families of children with debilitating brain disorders. The partnership aims to exploit Cardiff’s world-leading research in genetics, psychiatry and brain development in order to revolutionise Third Sector support for children with severe learning and developmental challenges.
