Cure SMA Announces New Research Funding

Cure SMA is proud to announce that we will be committing $1.8 million to new research funding over the next 12 months.

Fifteen years ago, we had just one potential drug in the beginning stages of preclinical discovery. Today we have over a dozen, including five now in clinical trials. Though there’s great promise in the research landscape, there’s also a pressing need for continued and growing investment.

In response to this need, we’re increasing our funding for all areas of research—basic research to understand SMA, drug discovery to make practical therapies, and clinical care research to improve the quality of life for those with SMA. With the size of our community and the strength of our connections, we’re able to direct research at unparalleled scale and efficiency.

Check out our news page and our latest advances page to stay up to date on the research that we are funding. We anticipate announcing our next grants in late 2014.

All our research is funded by the generosity and dedication of our supporters. Find out how you can give in support of SMA research.
