Mayo Clinic researchers are working to improve diagnosis and treatment of progressive supranuclear palsy. Specific efforts involve mapping changes in the brains of people with the condition, comparing familial and sporadic cases, using imaging to predict disease progression and to pinpoint diagnosis, and looking for environmental and genetic factors that may be associated with the condition.

Mayo Clinic also has one of the largest progressive supranuclear palsy brain banks in the world.
