How we're different
We focus on making sure that the most promising research in neuroscience makes it out of the lab and to the patient. All too often great research doesn’t get translated into new treatments to benefit those who need them most. Finding solutions is what drives us.
New technology that we support allows drugs to get to where they need to be in the brain. This is one of the most significant breakthroughs of the past 40 years in treating brain disorders. With it we are able to bring hope for the first time to sufferers of serious conditions like Parkinson’s or brain tumours. With your help we can pioneer new treatments and accelerate cures.
Pioneering trial for Parkinson's Disease... GDNF the results are out!
The results have been published for this ground-breaking trial, aimed to investigate whether boosting the levels of a naturally-occurring protein, Glial Cell Line Derived Neurotrophic Factor (GDNF), can regenerate dying neurons in the brain and reverse the condition. This has never been achieved previously.
The documentary following the trial will be shown on BBC 2 on the 28th February at 9pm and will feature Bryn's journey.
If anyone would like to donate to work with GDNF for Parkinson’s disease please go to the donate page.
