Collaboration is key to solve large-scale global problems, like curing paralysis in our lifetime. Where knowledge is imperfect and results uncertain, we need collaborative structures allowing us to pull resources and capabilities together from the network as they are needed.
To create this network we harness the power of our academic collaborators and Mark’s colleagues in the Forum of Young Global Leaders and the wider World Economic Forum community.
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.
