Leading the Fight to treatand cure Tay-Sachs, Canavan and related diseases
NTSAD’s Research Initiative funds research that may lead to treatments for lysosomal storage diseases or leukodystrophies impacting the
central nervous system (CNS). NTSAD solicits proposals annually for innovative research projects that involve basic research, translational studies or clinical studies. Basic research and translational studies should generate strong preliminary data to enable future major funding. All proposals are reviewed and evaluated by members of the NTSAD Scientific Advisory Committee and other qualified scientists. The final decision of award recipients is determined by the Research Initiative Committee of the NTSAD Board of Directors.Funding for the grants comes from gifts to NTSAD’s Research Initiative from NTSAD’s chapters and affiliates as well as donations and fundraising events.
