A fundraising event for an amazing innovative research project guided by the esteemed Dr. Alberto Espay. Dr. Espay will speak about this promising study that embraces the idea that there are likely dozens of biological pathways that lead to neurodegenerative diseases and that we must find and target each separately if we are ever going to get therapies that can alter these diseases in the individuals affected. The purpose of CCBP is to separate neurodegenerative diseases into their biological subtypes and then match each to therapies capable of slowing disease progression. In the first 5 years, the program will recruit 5000 people (4000 patients and 1000 healthy controls). Subsequent analysis will be anchored on bioassays selected to match people to existing therapies.

The study needs an MRI as a baseline for each and every participant to move forward. The purpose of this event is to fund as many MRIs as we can. 

                                                            HOW MANY MRIs CAN WE FUND?

                                                                Our goal is 100 baseline MRIs
            for one of the most 
promising innovative research programs for Parkinson’s disease today.
                                                                       Each MRI is $1,000.

                                    Summit believes this breakthrough study is some of the most
                                 promising work being done towards finding “cures” for Parkinson’s.
        *Summit for Stem Cell Foundation provides funding and support for this research program.
