Scientific Council

The BBRF Scientific Council guides the Foundation to fund creative and impactful research relevant to the whole spectrum of mental illness.

Led by Dr. Herbert Pardes, the founding President of our Scientific Council, the all-volunteer group of 182 pre-eminent mental health researchers rigorously evaluates every grant application, identifying the most promising, high-quality science. Research proposals are submitted from around the world. The BBRF Scientific Council reviews hundreds of grant applications submitted from around the world and selects the most promising research ideas with the greatest potential to lead to breakthroughs.
