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 Birmingham
The Cerebra Centre for Neurodevelopmental Disorders has developed a world-leading research programme, through which the behavioural, emotional and cognitive characteristics associated with complex disorders and rare genetic syndromes have been documented. The next phase of this research will be taken forward by the Cerebra Network for Neurodevelopmental Disorders.
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.
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.
University of Leeds
This team’s aim is to improve the prediction of mothers at risk of early delivery and to prevent it from happening so that fewer babies need neonatal intensive care and do not suffer the complications of being born too early (especially brain injury, such as cerebral palsy).
University of Leeds School of Law
Our innovative Legal Advice and Problem-Solving project (LEaP) and the Legal Rights Service that runs alongside it have come out of our collaboration with the University of Leeds School of Law. A new funding award has been granted to Professor Luke Clements who leads the programme.
University of Wales Trinity St David
University of Warwick
A new funding award has been granted to Professor Richard Hastings who will lead on the ‘Cerebra 1,000 Families’ project, the largest longitudinal research project in the UK about families and disability.
