Location: 10 Prince Place, Suite 203 Newburyport MA 01950 USA
Results: 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.
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.
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.
