Collaboration4Cure

Collaboration4Cure, since its inception in 2015, unites San Diego researchers, government officials, and philanthropists around a single goal: finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease.

By combining the resources of the County of San Diego, the City of San Diego, Alzheimer’s San Diego, and several world-renowned research institutes, C4C is accelerating the tremendous work being done locally to discover an effective treatment or cure.

All donations to the C4C initiative will stay in San Diego County to assist with drug discovery research projects for Alzheimer’s.
