Moving Forward

Encephalitis411.org has a 3-pronged mission of research, awareness and advocacy for those impacted by encephalitis. This newly established nonprofit, backed by physicians across multiple disciplines at major U.S. institutions, is working to increase awareness and advance research of this life-threatening, life-altering brain disorder in the States. This 501(c)(3) organization aims to advocate for those impacted by encephalitis, resulting in early diagnosis and the best possible treatment outcomes.


We are just getting off the ground, and are working closely with medical professionals from highly esteemed medical institutions such as Johns Hopkins, Kaiser Permanente, the National Institutes of Health, Cleveland Clinic, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Mayo Clinic, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Brown University. 


Together, we aim to support research to broaden the ability to better diagnose and treat encephalitis, and to provide hope.
