BrightFocus is the catalyst behind a groundbreaking drug development partnership targeting misfolded proteins.

Grantee and Director of the University of Toronto’s Krembil Research Institute, Donald Weaver, MD, PhD said, “BrightFocus had the wisdom and foresight to understand that this project could lead to a novel treatment for Alzheimer’s. It is a foundation that has the guts to fund a high risk, innovative idea."

Special thanks to our donors for making this research possible.
