Flanders, NJ (release-news) September 25, 2012 - Dr. Philip Defina is one of the leading figures in the world of brain research, and his efforts have earned him heroic status among the people he has helped. Of course, Dr. Defina would never call himself a hero. He is simply interested in studying the brain so that medical professionals can understand the best ways to treat brain injuries, diseases and disorders. Science and medicine have advanced tremendously in the last few decades, but there is still much to discover about the human brain and its functions. Dr. Defina has recognized that the world of brain research has fallen behind which is why he founded the International Brain Research Foundation, or IBRF. This organization has brought together a number of brilliant minds to study the brain, and Dr. Defina has inspired the efforts of the organization through his positions as Chief Executive Officer and Chief Scientific Officer of the foundation.
The first pillar of the foundation's wide-ranging and comprehensive mission is research. Dr. Defina and his colleagues believe that research is the key to finding answers to many of the most troubling brain issues. The IBRF is devoted to conducting cutting-edge research that takes advantage of new technologies so that innovative new treatments and procedures can be developed.
The second pillar of the IBRF mission is education. The ground-breaking work done by the foundation would be worthless if its discoveries were not shared with the world. This is why the organization works to provide excellent training to physicians and other medical professionals who are interested in healing those with brain injuries, diseases or disorders. This education is provided through seminars, lectures, presentations and various conferences which are attended by some of the brightest minds in medicine.
Technological advancement is the fourth aspect of the IBRF mission. Dr. Philip Defina and the rest of the foundation have committed themselves to exploring technology so that new methods of detection, mapping and treatment of brain disorders can be discovered. Through these efforts, many advances have been made recently which have led to the remarkable improvement of patients all over the world.
The final pillar of the International Brain Research Foundation's mission is collaboration on an international scale, as well as on a multi-center level. Dr. Defina and his colleagues believe that success in the world of treating brain disorders can only come as a result of collaboration with organizations and medical professionals throughout the world that share many of the same values as the IBRF. By connecting these groups and individuals, the foundation is able to make the process of finding treatments and cures more swift and effective.
Dr. Philip Defina is only one man, but his efforts at bringing people and ideas together through the IBRF have changed countless lives. Through the foundation's research, new treatments have been developed that have allowed people to live fuller lives. The work is not done, however, and Dr. Defina will surely continue to fight the courageous battle against brain injuries, disorders and diseases.
