Target demographics: fight Alzheimer's disease

Direct beneficiaries per year: many people suffering with Alzheimer's disease

Geographic areas served: all states

Programs: research grants, informational sessions, and other support for Alzheimer's patients and their families.

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.
Results:
NEAR is the only non-profit organization in the world to concentrate on developing gene transfer as a method of both modeling this disorder in the laboratory, as well as treating it in the clinic. By looking at the manner in which genes interact in Alzheimer's patients and also in unaffected people, we believe that new drug development and gene therapy will bring new cures and new hope for those suffering from Alzheimer's.
