Everything we do is aimed at improving lives

Millions of people with nervous system disorders are in need of new therapeutic options.

In this section, you’ll meet some of the people at Acorda are taking new approaches to developing medications that provide hope for people with nervous system disorders – and go beyond the walls of the company to improve lives. You’ll also find out how our partnerships and grant program are advancing research and education, and the process for submitting grant requests.
