Innovative Research

1 in 6 will suffer a stroke in their lifetime.

1 in 10 aged 60 and above has dementia.

3 in every 1,000 aged 50 and above has Parkinson’s disease.

Our researchers are working hard to find better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat these disabling conditions. But we need to work faster.

Already, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has predicted that by 2040, neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia and Parkinson’s disease will overtake cancer to become the second leading cause of death after cardiovascular disease.1 

The NNI Fund (Research) helps in accelerating medical research discoveries by funding ground-breaking research to better understand, lower the risk or even prevent conditions like dementia, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, brain tumour and many other neurodegenerative diseases.

Together, we can better understand, lower the risk or even prevent conditions like dementia, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and brain tumour and many other neurodegenerative diseases.
