At Denali Therapeutics, we are a team dedicated to defeating degeneration. Neurodegenerative diseases affecting the brain and spinal cord are among the largest medical challenges of our time. Recent groundbreaking scientific insights into the genetic causes and biological processes underlying this class of disorders (e.g. Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, ALS) offer an unprecedented opportunity for the discovery and development of effective medicines.

At Denali, we are passionate about solving problems with rigorous science and translational medicine. We have joined together to discover and develop new therapeutics that will change the lives of patients suffering from neurodegenerative disease.
