The National Ataxia Foundation (NAF) is pleased to announce that 24 promising ataxia research studies, totaling more than $1,000,000, from the United States, Italy, Australia, United Kingdom, Portugal, and Germany were awarded funding at the December 2013 NAF Board of Directors meeting for fiscal year 2014.
The funding for these important ataxia research projects have been made possible through the generosity of NAF donors and partners who contributed to the 2013 NAF Annual Ataxia Research Drive, the $150,000 matching research grant from The Gordon and Marilyn Macklin Foundation, our corporate and foundation friends, the Michael and Patricia Clementz Family Endowment Fund for SCA 3 Research, NAF chapters and support groups, individual and group donations, individuals and families who conducted fund raising events, NAF Walk n’ Rolls for Ataxia events, the Bob Allison Ataxia Research Center (BAARC) and to our anonymous donor who made a three year research commitment totaling $1.5 million to support spinocerebellar ataxia research.
The National Ataxia Foundation gratefully acknowledges all who supported these important ataxia research studies. It is through your generosity that enables NAF to continue to fund cutting-edge ataxia research studies that brings us closer to help end ataxia. Thank you!
A listing and summaries of these studies are now available on the Foundation’s web site HERE
