Mission
Awareness, education, care, and cure for devastating prime of life neurodegenerative diseases.

Vision
A world free of neurodegenerative disease.

Neurodegeneration that strikes when we least expect it
Prime of life neurodegeneration is a spectrum of relatively rare diseases that often afflict people during productive, active years and lead to debilitating symptoms and early death. They are generally categorized as frontotemporal disorders and are characterized by progressive personality, behavior, language, and motor decline. These diseases create a level of functional impairment that significantly compromises the ability to carry out activities of daily living. There is currently no treatment and no cure, but there is hope. Research into these diseases may be a gateway to understanding and ultimately preventing, treating, and curing more common neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

CurePSP is the leading organization within this disease spectrum, providing support for patients, families, and caregivers; awareness and education to healthcare professionals; and global research funding. Current research into prime of life diseases, especially progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), is showing great promise for unlocking the secrets of neurodegeneration.
