Type of institution
The Pasqual Maragall Foundation for the research on Alzheimer’s disease was born in April 2008, responding to the commitment made by Pasqual Maragall (former Major of the city of Barcelona and former President of the Catalonian Regional Government) after he acknowledged having been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
Directed by Jordi Camí, professor at the University Pompeu Fabra, promoter and director of the Biomedical Research Park of Barcelona (PRBB), the foundation is a private nonprofit institution. Its work is devoted to support and encourage scientific research in the field of Alzheimer's and neurodegenerative diseases, aiming to be crucial in the prevention, treatment and the cure of these diseases.
The foundation’s main objectives: to promote in Spain a new model of scientific research based on “high risk / high reward” projects, in line accordance with some cutting-edge international initiatives; to encourage the leading role of the private sector in the most innovative biomedical research, enrolling partners and investors in the process of funding the research projects. To raise social and public awareness of neurodegenerative diseases in close collaboration with other initiatives and partners.
