Tertia’s Dash for Cure

Tertia 2Remember Tertia?  She shared about research in schizophrenia a few months back. She’s now joining a team of seven other runners on a non-stop, tag team dash from Canberra to Sydney to raise awareness and funds for brain disease.

“I enjoy a challenge, especially one done for a good cause. The devastating effect of mental illness can not be underestimated, both for the person diagnosed and for their families and friends.

We still have a long way to go to develop effective treatments, which is a tall order when the underlying biological causes of many mental illnesses have not been fully determined. At NeuRA we are dedicated to understanding the brain and discovering what goes awry to cause mental illness, with the ultimate goal of improving treatments and even developing cures!
