Proceeds from the 2017 Cobble Beach Concours d’Elegance will help build the new home of Sunnybrook’s Hurvitz Brain Sciences Program, the only facility in Canada where world-class researchers and clinicians will work together to revolutionize treatment of the three most common brain disorders — dementia, stroke, and mood and anxiety disorders. Under one roof, Sunnybrook’s neurologists, psychiatrists, neurosurgeons and physicists will collaborate to accelerate discoveries that will benefit patients in every corner of the province and across the country and globe.
Sunnybrook’s brain sciences experts embed cutting-edge research in clinical care decisions, focusing on all age groups, from youth to the elderly. Our teams are already changing and saving lives with an innovative clot-busting stroke treatment, pioneering the use of focused ultrasound technology to safely open the blood-brain barrier, leading-edge imaging processes for dementia research, and ground-breaking discoveries involving the critical role of sleep and the link between mental illness and heart disease.
The new, 60-000 square-foot Hurvitz Brain Sciences Centre will enable Sunnybrook to build on these strengths. Funded entirely by private donors, the centre will feature a critically-needed psychiatry inpatient unit, including an area dedicated to caring for youth, ambulatory clinics for stroke and cognitive neurology, and purpose-built space for research and education.
With your help, Sunnybrook will continue to push the frontiers of discovery and invent the future of brain care.
