TeamUp for Research Events

With the support of family, friends and your community, through organizing a TeamUp For Research Event, you can make a difference in the fight against mental illness. Brain & Behavior Research Foundation relies on the generosity of friends like you to help fund leading brain and behavior research. When you honor or remember someone special or hold a fundraiser, you play a key role in helping us fund better prevention and treatment protocols and hopefully find a cure for mental illness. 100% of donor contributions for research are invested in our grants leading to advances and breakthroughs in brain and behavior research. This is made possible by the generous support of two family foundations which cover all of the Foundation’s operating expenses.

For more information please contact the Foundation at or 800-829-8289.
