Scientific Research Papers

Ready for a science deep dive? Here are selected research papers on the study of prions (aka misfolded proteins or prion particles) and how they affect brain diseases.

Discovering the Cure

We believe Prions are the bad actors that drive many yet incurable diseases. Cracking the code on Prions is the key in finding successful drugs, making the incurables curable.


Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s are our top priorities.
