Rita Levi-Montalcini

The brain is a very complex, mysterious and fascinating organ and remains a frontier to be explored.  The objectives of the European Brain Research Institute (EBRI), founded in 2002 by Nobel Laureate Rita Levi-Montalcini, are directed at better understanding brain function, so as to develop new treatments for brain diseases.

EBRI is a research institute recognized at the national and international level for its brain research and the development of new therapeutic approaches for neurological and psychiatric disorders. The Institute offers a collaborative and stimulating international scientific environment and is also actively engaged in disseminating and enhancing scientific knowledge.

Our Founder

Rita Levi-Montalcini dedicated her life to research, resolutely facing every obstacle, from racial discrimination to an archaic conception of the role of women in society and science. At the age of 93, she founded EBRI, an international research institute dedicated entirely to the study of the brain.
