Our Statement on Injustice, Inequality and Racism
We join our fellow Americans in expressing our sadness and revulsion at the killing of George Floyd. This horrific event reminds us how racism permeates healthcare, social and economic systems, obstructing access for people of color. Life without brain disease means life without brain disease for everyone. We are determined to do better.
Updates from Our Research Partner on Coronavirus
We know how deeply the medical and patient communities are affected by the COVID-19 health care crisis. Our research partner, the American Academy of Neurology is providing updated information on the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Meet Ken Keene Jr.
Before frontotemporal lobe dementia, sometimes called Pick’s disease, Ken Keene Sr. was a respected community member and a handy man who could fix anything. For his oldest son and namesake Ken Keene Jr., there was nothing his father couldn’t do: “To my family, he was just that super dad. Then all of a sudden he’s reaching out for help.”
Inspired To Find A Cure
Meet Suma Babu, MBBS, MPH
Dr. Babu’s goal is to understand the inflammatory and neurodegenerative changes in the spinal cords of people living with ALS. Her team’s study addresses important, under-studied, disease mechanism-related research questions with potential implications for improving clinical trial designs in ALS.
