NTSAD is dedicated to finding a cure for Tay-Sachs, Sandhoff, Canavan, GM-1 and all the related diseases. Since we were founded over 50 years ago by a group of concerned parents, NTSAD has been at the forefront of advancing and supporting breakthrough research through the Research Initiative and collaborative programs. This is a very exciting time in Tay-Sachs and related diseases research. The Tay-Sachs Gene-Therapy Consortium program has already shown excellent results in animal models and is driving toward initiating human clinical trials.
