Funded Research

The Weston Brain Institute has initiated a variety of programs to date. Four of these programs have been in collaboration with other organizations, including the Michael J. Fox Foundation, Brain Canada, the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation and the Alzheimer’s Association.

All programs going forward will support translational research to accelerate the development of therapeutics for neurodegenerative diseases of aging.
