The mission of the CMT Research Foundation is to deliver treatments and cures for CMT during our lifetime. Founded by two patients who are driven to expedite drug delivery to people who live with CMT globally, the organization supports research focused on the discovery and development of therapeutics. The CMT Research Foundation pursues this goal by identifying and bridging gaps in biomedical research, with a focus on areas that are most likely to result in treatments. We are most focused on translational research, but also fund discovery phase research with a clear link to speeding progress toward treatments and cures. The CMT Research Foundation accepts proposals that address four key scientific barriers to drug development: delivering therapies to the peripheral nervous system, advancing genetic medicine, promoting nerve health, and de-risking clinical trials.
