After a successful research drive and the generous $200,000 matching gift, the National Ataxia Foundation with the support of the Ataxia community will
buy nearly 1.1 million dollars worth of research that will
find answers in 2017. Researchers from institutions in the United States, Australia, Portugal, Germany, The Netherlands, and Canada were awarded funding for their Ataxia research studies. The 27 research projects include the launch of a US-Europe neuroimaging partnership, an intensive home based speech rehabilitation study, understanding of newly discovered genes, the National Ataxia Database and many other studies focus on finding answers to the very challenging disease - Ataxia. The lay summaries of these projects will be posted on the National Ataxia Foundation website soon and printed in the Spring issue of Generations.
