A great day at the golf
A superb day for the golf at the Shirley Golf Club, at our annual Golf tournament organised by our wonderful "Friends of the BRI" group. A magnificent $30,000 was raised to benefit our work and our sincere thanks go to the following people and businesses who made it a success.
The Friends of the Brain Research Institute (FBI), Christchurch Radiology Group, Pegasus Bay Winery, Sharpies Golf Barn, Mike Pero Cashmere and all our hole sponsors. We look forward to seeing you all back next year. Pictured below from left: A great day at the club. Mel Brew (FBI Chairperson) and Robyn GIllespie manning the desk. The Mike Pero Team.

Our researchers Dr Tracy Melzer (imagingphysicist) and Mustafa Almuqbel (radiographer and PhD candidate) have been helping NASA and an international team to study the effects of wintering over in Antarctica. The hope is that this will help us to understand the effects on the brain of long journeys to Mars.

(Please note that although the reporter states that the NZBRI is an Otago University-owned institute, we are, in fact, independent but have close working relationships with both local universities)
