The Canavan Research Foundation is dedicated to eradicating neurodegenerative brain disease. Our research culminated in the world’s first gene therapy for a brain disease in 1996, which spurred myelin growth in the brain of its young recipients. In the past few months, there has been a major breakthrough- through stem cell and metabolic treatment, the research team has found a cure to Canavan Disease, which will lead to a cure for Alzheimer’s and other degenerative diseases. But funding is direly needed- your help has never been so important.
