RESEARCH GRANTS ANNOUNCED!
We are thrilled to announce that The Isaac Foundation has granted $200,000 in research grants to 3 innovative projects aimed at finding a cure for MPS!
We are proud to award $100,000 to Dr. Alberto Auricchio in Italy for his incredibly exciting work on Gene Therapy. We hope to see this work head to clinical trials in early 2015!
We are also very excited to award 2 $50,000 research grants from the MPS II FUND, under the leadership of Deb Purcell! The recipients of these awards are granted to Dr. Scott McIvor at the University of Minnesota for his work entitled “AAV Mediated IDS Gene Transfer for MPS II” and to Dr. Brian Bigger at the University of Manchester for his work “Evaluating Stem Cell Gene Therapy for Treating the Brain in MPS II”
This brings the total awarded over the past 6 months to $250,000 – all in hopes of finding a cure for our children.We look forward to seeing results from this research and will continue our work raising money to support these projects and more during the course of the next few years.
Thank you for your incredible support. None of this can happen without you.
