About Us

Our research sets us apart...

"Today much of the discovery based research shows that reversal of abnormal Rett biology is possible through both genetic and pharmacologic intervention. But we must also prioritize the development of forward looking habilitation therapies. As we continue to bring these drug treatments into the clinic to correct the biology, we must push equally hard to discover the best methodologies to reset the neurology. These avenues of therapeutic intervention must converge as they are both fundamental to improving the lives of all of the girls and women with Rett syndrome."

- Steven Kaminsky, Ph.D., Rettsyndrome.org Chief Science Officer
