Five years after its initial donation of $20 million for the establishment of the Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences at the Hebrew University, the Edmond J. Safra Philanthropic Foundation has confirmed a further gift of $30 million.
The new donation follows a progress report by a group of international neuroscience experts which concluded that the center has a strong base and great potential and uses diverse approaches to neuroscience by bringing together the world’s leading researchers in their particular fields. Foundation chairman Lily Safra, said on Tuesday: “Unlocking the mysteries of the brain depends on supporting the world’s best researchers in a premier setting that encourages effective collaboration. I am proud to be able to support such a noble cause, one that will improve the treatment and quality of life of so many patients suffering from illnesses of the brain.”
