Target demographics: find effective treatments and ultimately a cure for all children and adults who have Fragile X syndrome

Direct beneficiaries per year: 20 research teams to find new treatments for Fragile X; half of them have now gone on to receive large grants from the National Institutes of Health.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: help us spread the word about Fragile X treatment on Facebook or on the web

Geographic areas served: the U.S., Canada, Europe, South America, and Australia

Programs: 1) Research grants and fellowships to fund research on Fragile X Syndrome, autism, and related disorders at universities around the world.
2) The FRAXA drug validation initiative (FRAXA-DVI), where we can provide preclinical testing of potential new medications for Fragile X; we have provided this service to a dozen pharmaceutical companies and now several of them are conducting clinical trials.

FRAXA was founded in 1994 by three parents of children with Fragile X. Our mission is to accelerate research aimed at finding effective treatments and a cure for Fragile X and related disorders, by directly funding grants and fellowships at top universities around the world.
We have funded $23 Million in targeted research and are on the verge of bringing a treatment for Fragile X - and perhaps also autism - to patients.
