To achieve our Mission, the Foundation funds some of the most brilliant minds in neuroscience. Having recognized that no one laboratory has the compass to tackle the complex challenges of peripheral neuropathy, the Foundation organized a collaborative approach that will allow researchers to achieve a high level of trust, openness and collaborative interactions marked by dynamic, interactive and intellectual and scientific relationships between them. Collaborative efforts will foster the exchange of new information and cutting edge technologies with academic and industry researchers alike. We hope to increase the movement of new treatments into the clinic. Ultimately, the more that is known about the function and dysfunction of the nervous system, the more individuals can be helped to have a better future.
