Committed to Finding Cures

There is no time to lose in understanding, treating, preventing and searching for cures for neurological disorders, which affect more than one in three individuals during their  lifetime — and the incidence is rapidly increasing. The Institute for Neurological Discoveries rises to that challenge — our research is attacking the very roots of neurological disease.
