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.
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.
