Mission: Our mission is to investigate the underlying causes of Alzheimer's and to develop rapid clinical interventions both for Alzheimer's and other brain disorders. A secondary mission is to promote public awareness and education with respect to Alzheimer's disease and related dementia, and to encourage the involvement of individuals, businesses, foundations, and government in finding a cure.

My relative who got Alzheimer's is grateful for the hard work that NEAR has put into developing new gene therapies which some day will be a cure for her and many others. Thank you so much for your valuable work. You are truly saving lives and making a difference.

For me, the key in becoming involved in an organization is my sense of how they will help to change the world. In my opinion, this is one of the truly world-changing organizations and I am 100% behind NEAR in its mission to cure Alzheimer's by 2020.
