About Synapticure

Synapticure launched in 2022 to serve individuals living with ALS, and we continue to expand our care for additional neurodegenerative diseases including Parkinson’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease and other Dementias. Remote by design, we are backed by Google Ventures, Optum Ventures and other leading healthcare investors.

Synapticure aims to provide individuals living with neurodegenerative disease and their families access to the best care, while fueling the advancement of personalized treatments. Our care teams create a guided journey for each patient that educates and empowers, while relentlessly working to obtain access to critical tests, clinical trials, and expert providers.
