Up to this point in history it has proven to be impossible to find a cure for paralysis. Yet history is filled with accounts of the impossible made possible through human endeavour. The same human endeavour that allowed explorers to reach the South Pole 100 years ago. And, the same human endeavour that allowed astronauts to travel to the moon 50 years ago.
Inspired by those stories of exploration, we began searching for a new wave of pioneers around the world who are focused on creating a cure for paralysis. And we now work with them.
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.
This year, we aim to raise €500,000 to fund our research programmes and build a world-class project management office to support scientists and technologists with the business expertise to translate their findings from the lab to the clinic.
