Neurodegeneration Challenge Network

Neurodegenerative disorders, like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, and Huntington’s Disease, are a leading cause of death and disability worldwide. We are approaching neurodegeneration with a view that the path forward means taking a different approach. Our goal is to develop a new kind of collaborative network — one that brings new ideas and new people into the field, supports them with well validated tools and resources, and asks them to look at this problem from a cross-disease perspective. To this end, The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative announced $51.95 million in funding and its selection of 17 early career investigators and nine collaborative science teams to launch the CZI Neurodegeneration Challenge Network.
