Neurodegeneration

Maintaining cognitive function is key to living better longer.

Our focus is aging

“Fear of losing my mind” is at the top of the list of what most people dread about aging. Even though our brains begin to show signs of aging in our 30s, there is good news. The brain maintains “plasticity” throughout most of our lifetime, and scientific interventions show promise. The Buck is approaching Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Huntington’s disease from many angles. We have a unique program focused on neuropeptides, and we are even exploring neurodegeneration as a driver of aging itself.
