Accelerating research in Parkinson’s with GBA

The Silverstein Foundation for Parkinson’s with GBA actively pursues and invests in cutting edge research with the goal of discovering new therapies for the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease in glucocerebrosidase (GBA) mutation carriers.

One Foundation. Many Goals.

The Silverstein Foundation for Parkinson’s with GBA has four main goals:

  • To raise awareness around Parkinson’s Disease associated with GBA mutations and relevant clinical trials for mutation carriers;
  • To aggressively seek out new, cutting-edge therapeutic approaches to treating and preventing Parkinson’s in GBA mutation carriers;
  • To engage with clinicians, academic scientists and biotechnology companies to accelerate research and clinical trials in an effort to rapidly bring new therapeutic options to patients;
  • To raise the necessary funds to meet these goals.

We appreciate your support as we work toward our goals. Please visit our donation page.


We are actively involved in
pre-clinical (and soon to be clinical) programs that could be appropriate for GBA mutation carriers.
