Our Research

Our global multidisciplinary research team of M.D.s and Ph.D.s focus on synergistic research to accelerate cures. We advance novel approaches, new therapies and promising technologies with the potential to transform the lives of patients’ and provide innovative clinical care.

We believe in the power of collaboration and synergy that create a Halo Effect to maximize donor dollars and speed research into therapies for currently incurable neurological diseases and disorders. We look for the most promising developments across the neuroscience continuum including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, acquired Head and Spinal Cord Injury, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) and Multiple Sclerosis.
