2025 Cure One, Cure Many Award

There are over 600 known brain diseases, and neuroinflammation plays a role in nearly all of them. Almost every major pediatric, adult, and geriatric neurological and neuropsychiatric disorder involves complex changes in the brain’s inflammatory response.

Insights into neuroinflammation’s role in brain health will allow us to more precisely target diseases as different as Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, stroke, brain tumor, epilepsy, migraine, chronic pain, myopathy and neuropathy, traumatic brain injury, schizophrenia, autism and COVID-19-associated brain disease. Together, these diseases affect 60% of the U.S. population and at least 3 billion people worldwide. They attack the essence of what makes us human: thought, speech, emotion, and movement.

Exploring the Role of Neuroinflammation in Brain Disease

The 2025 Cure One, Cure Many award is a groundbreaking, multimillion-dollar research initiative focused on better understanding neuroinflammation’s role in brain disease, and promises to transform the future of brain health. This unprecedented, cross-industry collaboration between scientists, disease-specific organizations like the National MS Society and the Encephalitis Society, and patient advocacy groups will
unlock possibilities for early detection and innovative new therapies. 

This collaboration between organizations directly supports our philosophy of “Cure One, Cure Many“, a commitment to investing in research across the full spectrum of brain diseases and disorders.

By investing in research across a range of diseases and disorders, we improve our chances of identifying these connections. When we find the cure for one brain disease, we will find cures to many others.
