At the Mark Pollock Trust, we believe we can cure paralysis in our lifetime.
With enough of the right people having the will to make it happen, we will change the lives of the 60 million people around the world who suffer from paralysis and the 2.5 million people who specifically suffer from spinal cord injury.
So, we’re on a mission to find and connect people worldwide to fast-track a cure for paralysis.
How can we cure paralysis in our lifetime?
Scientists and technologists with life-changing research results are often spectacular researchers. However, that does not mean that they are equally accomplished at, or have time for, delivering all aspects of complex research projects. To solve this we provide an outsourced project management resource, take part in experimental research studies and socialise their work publicly.
The world’s greatest scientists and technologists will discover a cure for paralysis by working together. So, we are focused on creating collaborations that have never been done before and, ultimately, supporting our collaborators to navigate a pathway from research breakthrough, to regulatory approval and commercialisation.

Up to this point in history it has proven to be impossible to find a cure for spinal cord injury. But we believe we can change that if enough of the right people have the will to make it happen.
So, it is the Mark Pollock Trust’s mission to find and connect those people worldwide to fast track a cure for paralysis.
To fund our ongoing academic programme we are creating a $10 million endowment fund to generate $400,000 annually to support our science and technology research.
