IRSF receives $1 million matching gift
Date:10/26/2009

c research projects closer to the clinic. The goal of the program is to support grants to facilitate drug discovery and development, and increase the likelihood of finding a successful treatment for Rett syndrome. A new funding mechanism, called the "ADVANCED NEURO-THERAPEUTIC GRANT OF EXCELLENCE" (ANGEL) award, will support high-impact projects to develop and test new therapies that could alleviate symptoms, restore function or possibly reverse Rett syndrome.

"IRSF-ANGEL awards will target several 'disease modifying' treatments already in pre-clinical development or poised for testing in pilot clinical trials," said Dr. Horton. "IRSF staff and scientific advisors have conducted careful due diligence and selected a number of the most promising therapeutic strategies now in development to treat Rett syndrome. "

Kissam adds, "With this Research to Reality campaign, IRSF is hoping to quickly double the size of its budget for research grants, while also growing its public-private partnerships and relationships with industry. Our hats are off to Mr. Black, The Pioneer Fund, and the countless other donors and families who will rise to the occasion of this exciting matching gift challenge and help us be successful in wiping out Rett syndrome once and for all."

Clint Black, along with his brother Kevin, will host a kick-off concert and golf tournament for the campaign in The Woodlands, Texas, on November 1-2, 2009. Additionally, local families will participate in a Strollathon October 31st.
