Brain Chemistry Labs seek to discover new treatments for brain diseases by studying proven patterns of wellness and disease from indigenous people. We have only one wish at Brain Chemistry Labs: to discover new treatments for serious illnesses. This focus has led to the discovery of two promising new drugs for ALS, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other tangle diseases. We have a third drug in development. Our novel path to discovery has been exciting. Each step of this path, beginning in Guam, has brought us closer to a cure.
