About The Foundation

Faye Simon Harac formed the Irene & Eric Simon Brain Research Foundation to honor her parents and to help further education & research in the field her dad was so passionate about. Inspired by the groundbreaking discoveries originating from Dr. Simon’s 54 years as an NYU researcher, this foundation seeks to help further research and education and to help find answers to addiction & pain and other brain diseases and disorders, such as schizophrenia, brain cancer, traumatic brain injury, PTSD, Parkinson's and Alzheimer’s.

Contributions Make the Summer Fellowship Program Possible

We are able to give summer fellowships due to the generosity of donors and sponsors. Some businesses will match your charitable donation, so that whatever tax-deductible donation you give IES Brain Research Foundation, will have double the impact.
