Accelerating Research

Tackling Sanfilippo Syndrome From All Angles

Your support funds extensive research into multiple avenues for a treatment/cure, as well as spearheads, supports, and funds initiatives that create valuable disease-specific and patient-preference information about Sanfilippo. All of which leads to more effective treatments, and opportunities for earlier diagnosis.

Your support has enabled Cure Sanfilippo Foundation to commit more than $8.5 million to fund and/or to architect 30+ scientific research projects and clinical trials, to conduct qualitative research supporting development of patient-centered treatments, and to refine technologies that could lead to earlier diagnoses.
