At MINDlink, we're funding vital research ― finding hope for Catie and 6 million like her battling neurodegenerative diseases.  Learn how we're doing it and how you can help…
"I am a soda bottle that has been shaken and can't get out.  If someone opens the bottle I will be free to speak my mind and do whatever I please."­ - Catie Lake, 24 years old, stricken with Ataxia type 17 (SCA 17).
Your help is urgently needed. "Every week we receive requests from highly skilled scientists to join the lab, but there are no funds. Imagine if we could say 'yes.'"­ - Dr. Jeremy Schmahmann  
Advances in medicine are made by creative thinkers and Dr. Schmahmann, a Professor of Neurology at Harvard, has been called one of the world's most creative thinkers. Find out why...
Dr. Schmahmann is pioneering a new field of study called "Connectivity."  With your support, it can help connect the cerebellum to cures.

At MINDlink, we are providing a means of generating support for Dr. Schmahmann’s ground-breaking research at the Laboratory for Neuroanatomy and Cerebellar Neurobiology at Massachusetts General Hospital to find a cure for the more than six million Americans who suffer from neurodegenerative diseases such as ataxia, Alzheimer’s, autism, depression and schizophrenia, epilepsy, Huntington’s, and Parkinson’s. Novel treatments must be discovered before the enormous cost of these diseases – now in the billions of dollars – overwhelms our health care system. With your support we can connect the cerebellum to cures!
