Support and Sponsorship

BrainImmune new support sponsorship

We provide up-to-date information, expert opinions and viewpoints, and the latest conceptual frameworks at the interface of neurosciences, endocrinology and immunology.

MISSION and why did we develop BrainImmune

By narrowing down the information and conceptual gap at the interface of neurosciences and immunology – our mission is to help, promote and speed up the advancement of neuroendocrine-immunology research.


The brain and the immune system, or the ‘supersystems’ (T. Tada, 1997), are the two major adaptive systems of the body. The immune system, however, has been often regarded as autonomous, and the question of how the brain communicates with the immune system remained enigmatic until fairly recently. The more we share knowledge, the easier it is to break down barriers between scientific areas.

STRESS and Stress-Immune Interactions

According to the American Institute of Stress, ‘stress’ is America’s #1 health problem, whereas two-thirds of all office visits to family physicians are due to stress-related symptoms (cf. the American Academy of Family Physicians). BrainImmune is the first site covering stress-immune interactions with over 120 articles in this area.


Concepts discussed here represent recent advances in the field; they are not available in medical textbooks, and, as a general rule, not taught at medical schools. Thus, the BrainImmune resource might serve not only as a useful foundation of knowledge for researchers & medical professionals, but also as an important educational tool for medical & PhDs students or postdoctoral research scientists and trainees worldwide.

We believe that everyone should be able to access online information freely. Information should not be limited or restricted by subscriptions and/or submission fees.

From our beginning, we haven’t put-up a paywall of subscriptions and/or submission fees. Thus, your support is essential in enabling the development of BrainImmune.

We welcome both individual contributions and more substantial support from academia and industry.
