Research

The PSP Association is the only UK organization dedicated to funding research which aims to:

• Develop a better understanding of the causes of PSP

• Establish the best ways of caring for people with PSP

• Develop an effective treatment for PSP

• Find a cure for PSP.

The PSP Association supports both Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) and Cortico Basal Degeneration (CBD). References to PSP in this section should be read, where appropriate, like PSP and CBD.

Following consultation with people with PSP and CBD, their carers, health care professionals, researchers, and other interested parties, we have published our new Research Strategy which sets out the broad focus for the charity’s research for the five-year period from January 2011 to December 2015.
