April 2, 2009 ALBUQUERQUE, NM - The Mind Research Network (MRN) announces a ten thousand dollar donation to the Domenici Discovery Fund by the Clark L. Tanner Foundation. “This contribution helps drive the research that already is finding better ways to diagnose and treat mental illness and other brain disorders, “said MRN President Dr. John Rasure. The Clark L. Tanner Foundation is based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The organization is dedicated to supporting institutions that result in improved outcomes for the individuals and families suffering from schizophrenia. “We are especially proud of the Tanner Foundation family’s confidence in the MRN research we believe will dramatically impact clinical treatment for mental illness. The Tanner Foundation propels the next decade of breakthroughs thanks to the Domenici Discovery Fund,” Dr. Rasure added.

Domenici founded MRN eleven years ago, and continues his passionate work to bring hope and peace of mind to the individuals and families who live every day with mental illness, brain disease and brain injury.
