One Mind





For more than 20 years, the Staglin family has championed brain health with a passion derived from personal experience. Through their vision, efforts, and outreach, more than $225 million has been raised over the past two decades to support an impressive portfolio of brain health initiatives, and led to the formation of two organizations: One Mind Institute and One Mind. Independently, One Mind Institute and One Mind have seeded and accelerated important work in brain science with a steadfast focus on and awareness of the urgency to deliver hope to patients and families touched by brain injury and illness.


In order to address the obstacles that hinder progress and delay the availability of new treatments for patients with brain injury and illness, One Mind Institute and One Mind are joining forces to focus our energy and resources to support research programs that represent the highest standards of collaboration and open science. We will partner with research teams that seek to expand the knowledge of the field so that advances in one area of brain science can be applied to others. We will work to champion programs that emphasize the translation of science into clinical tools, and leverage the power of public-private partnerships to tackle the biggest brain health challenges of our time. As a team, we will work to fundamentally shift the research ecosystem from one of competition to one of sharing in the interest of making life better for patients. Working together, our hopes for the future of brain health are within reach. Together, we are now One Mind.



Our Vision:

Healthy brains and strong minds for all


Our Mission:

To radically accelerate cures for brain illnesses and injuries by funding and fostering paradigm-shifting scientific research collaborations and initiatives.

Key Principles: 

  • Champion open/big science to solve big problems - Global Innovation for Brain Health
  • Collaborate: Don't compete, don't reinvent the wheel, leverage and fill gaps in existing initiatives.
  • Be inclusive: Build a ‘collaboratory’ that includes scientists, clinicians, patients, families, industry, healthcare providers, and policy makers
  • Implement: Research is not enough, new knowledge needs to be adopted by healthcare practitioners and patients quickly
  • Learning healthcare: Develop, implement, evaluate, and modify diagnostics and treatments for brain health as needed, repeat.
  • Leverage government, industry and philanthropic funding

We are building a new website that will represent our consolidated organization that will soon be launched here on Stay tuned!
