Cure Alzheimer’s Fund
The Fund’s mission is to fund research with the highest probability of preventing slowing or reversing Alzheimer’s disease. Its focus is not on incremental steps, but more on higher risk/high contribution research. Because the founders pay all the operating expenses and there is no endowment, every dollar given to CAF is immediately used for research with the best chance of leading to new therapies and, hopefully soon, a cure. To date, it has funded $15 million in research at 24 different institutions across the country and one internationally. See http://curealz.org/.
