BENEFITING: CurePSP

David Kemp

THE STORY:

Neurodegeneration isn’t just a disease of old age. Thousands of people suffer the debilitation symptoms of progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and related diseases in the prime of life, when they often have careers, family responsibilities and active lives. The diseases progress quickly with devastating movement, behavioral, emotional and cognitive symptoms. There is no treatment and no cure, but there is hope.

CurePSP, the foundation for prime of life neurodegeneration, is working in collaboration with leading geneticists to identify mutations that predispose people to developing PSP and related diseases. This will be the definitive study of PSP genetics involving the sequencing and analysis of up to 3,000 genomes using the latest technologies and processes. The project will take us a giant step forward in helping us to understand the origins of not only PSP but of all neurodegeneration including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson's diseases.

You can help by funding the sequencing and analysis of these genomes, which cost $1,500 each. With a contribution of $250 or more, you will get a framed map of a genome sequence that you helped to fund (last picture in the carousel). Each map is a unique and beautiful representation of the discovery that you are helping to support. With a contribution of $1,500 you will receive a set of five individual and unique genome maps and will be recognized as a member of the PSP Genetics Consortium, receive periodic reports of progress and be eligible for other benefits of membership.
