Investment Opportunities

 

We have opportunities to invest in and be a part of our most promising initiatives and programs, leaving a lasting legacy of your involvement. Investment opportunities include two tiers of research programs – venture grants and enterprise grants. Legacy funds provide families and foundations a way to name a program or study in honor of a loved one. The PSP Genetics Consortium allows partnership in PSP’s biggest and first whole genome study of 3,000 participants, in collaboration with the Tau Consortium. Our Brain Bank program is an organ donation program that supports post-mortem autopsies, providing final conclusive diagnoses for families struggling for answers. CurePSP reimburses costs of this donation.

CurePSP Venture Grants

CurePSP provides “seed funding” to investigators who have innovative ideas that need “proof of concept” in order to qualify for larger funding sources. We provide grants to scientists of up to $100,000 for one- or two-year studies, up to four a year. These are carefully evaluated by our distinguished global Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) in collaboration with our Vice President-Scientific Affairs and the Board of Directors Research Committee. Because of that, these studies offer donors the opportunity to name and be involved with hand-selected and intensively administered research that provides the greatest impact and return on investment.

If you are interested in funding and naming a study, please email our Vice President – Scientific Affairs at  klein@curepsp.org.

CurePSP Enterprise Grants

CurePSP supports large research projects conducted by leading senior investigators at major institutions. These studies may involve a longer timeline and broader scope than our Venture Grants, and may involve joint funding from other sources. These studies have the potential of making major strides in the quest to find treatment and cure for neurodegeneration and as such provide significant opportunities for donor recognition and involvement.

If you are interested in funding and naming a study, please email our Vice President – Scientific Affairs at  klein@curepsp.org.

Legacy Funds

CurePSP’s Legacy Funds provide families with the opportunity to recognize a loved one in perpetuity through an appeal targeted to friends, extended family, business associates and others. Each Legacy Fund will have a focus that wholly supports a CurePSP initiative or program, at the discretion of the donor. Programs may be named to recognize the family, and may include research, patient and family care, education and awareness.

If you are interested in initiating a Legacy Fund, please email David Kemp, President, at kemp@curepsp.org, or call 347-294-2873

genetics-cons-cropped

The PSP Genetics Consortium is a group of neurologists, geneticists, and other neuroscientists from the United States, United Kingdom and Germany, studying the underlying genetics of PSP. The goal of this multi-national approach is to search the entire human genome for genes linked to PSP and related disorders. The PSP Genetics Consortium is a collaboration between CurePSP and the Tau Consortium, and provides great potential for serious impact and real breakthroughs.

Brain Bank

The brain bank at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, supported by CurePSP, provides an invaluable resource to investigators by providing tissue samples for their research. It also provides a postmortem confirmation of diagnosis to families of the deceased. CurePSP reimburses families for the costs of brain donation. 

To partner with CurePSP on this program please contact Alex Klein, Vice President – Scientific Affairs at  klein@curepsp.org.
