Our Mission and Vision


Our mission is to find effective, scientifically-based treatments that lead to a cure for neurodegenerative brain diseases.

This is accomplished through two main areas:

  • Rigorous clinical trials that emphasize patient and family benefits and public health impact, and by offering the best experimental approaches to neurodegenerative therapies to our local and international communities 
  • Observational studies that deepen our understanding of the biological mechanisms of neurodegenerative disease and provide the foundation and tools for interventional clinical trial

We envision a world without degenerative brain diseases of aging.  Short of this, a supportive and safe environment to access the latest experimental therapies.
