“The RSRT is unique in its ability to fund teams of researchers working towards a common goal. The success of their approach was on full display at the recent meeting in Boston. I was particularly struck by the open sharing of unpublished data and by the cordial, yet frank, discussions on the best approaches to advance treatments. It is rare that researchers with seemingly competing interests can come together in such a collaborative effort, yet this is exactly what RSRT has been able to achieve. This approach is clearly paying dividends, as never before have I witnessed such exciting and hopeful research. I am confident that new treatments are in our near future. And while I always hesitate to use the word “cure”, dare I say that after this meeting I now feel that even transformative treatments seem within reach. The future for treating Rett syndrome is bright, largely due to the amazing efforts of the RSRT.”-Ben Philpot
Progress is being made on all fronts:
Our scientists went home invigorated and inspired, as did the RSRT staff and trustees.
