Oct 2021: Launch of new laboratory based research initiative for Progressive Supranuclear Palsy.

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Jeffrey Young Research Programme - a research project looking at the mechanisms and causes of progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP). PSP is a progressive and incurable neurodegenerative condition, the cause of which is unknown. This privately funded, laboratory-based research initiative will bring together international expertise in human stem cells, drug discovery and pathology. 

The Jeffrey Young Research Programme was established by Jeffrey's family in loving memory of their lively, outgoing uncle and husband who had a joie de vivre. It is hoped that this privately funded initiative will bring much-needed positive news for patients and families who are living with PSP.

"The Jeffrey Young Research Programme brings hope for the future. We want people living with PSP and their families not to endure, as we did, the most awful effects of this most terrible illness. How proud Jeffrey would have been to know that this research programme was in his name."  Elaine Young & Neil Blair
