CurePSP has always believed that truly effective clinical interventions will follow good, solid basic scientific research. For this reason, CurePSP promotes research that helps generate an integrated picture of PSP and CBD at the molecular and cellular levels. CurePSP believes that in the long term, research of this nature will prove indispensable in developing a prevention or cure for PSP and CBD.
CurePSP has carefully structured its research program and has identified the programs that have been the most successful and those that need strengthening. With an increased research budget made possible through improved donor support, CurePSP will be able to markedly intensify the efforts to cure the disease in a way that promises relief for those afflicted today as well as hope for those who may be afflicted tomorrow.
