Research Symposium

CurePSP (Foundation for PSP | CBD and Related Brain Diseases) conducts an annual Research Symposium to facilitate dissemination of advances in the fields of PSP, CBD and related brain diseases. This annual symposium highlights research by CurePSP grantees and will be open to all researchers interested in clinical and basic studies of PSP, CBD, and related tauopathies.

The Symposium also assists the Foundation's Scientific Advisory Board in identifying work of exceptional promise, which may then be considered for additional funding.
