Our mission is to build a network among academic researchers, biotech researchers, clinicians, and patients in the field of neurodegeneration in the Research Triangle Park, North Carolina (RTP).

We hope to accomplish this mission through the organization of events to foster collaboration and integrating the patient community in the Triangle. Below you can find some standout quotes and video clips from our Past Events.
