Genetics Consortium

Genetics Consortium

The CurePSP Genetics Consortium is a group neurologists, geneticists, and other scientists from the United States, United Kingdom, and Germany.

Working in collaboration with neuroscientists throughout the world, their goal is to search the entire human genome for genes related to PSP and CBD. This search will identify previously unsuspected abnormal biochemical pathways against which scientists may be able to target therapeutic interventions.
