Date:10/1/2010

on the partnership award to Dr. Amendola saying, "Our shared goals and research endeavors will benefit children affected by both CDKL5 and Rett syndrome and we are proud to partner with IRSF in co-funding this project. Finding a cure is our top priority and this is a critical step forward."

New Translational Research Awards Announced

In addition to the regular research awards, IRSF recently launched "Research to Reality" an aggressive fundraising campaign spearheaded by IRSF's HeART and ANGEL grant awards which provide funding for drug discovery, development and testing. The first HeART grant awards will provide seed funding for the following early stage drug discovery programs:

  • "Serotonin and small molecule treatment of respiratory disorders in a mouse model of Rett syndrome" John M. Bissonnette, Oregon Health & Science University
  • "Novel screening methods for quantitative, homeostatic regulation of MeCP2", Rajiv Ratan, MD, PhD, Burke Medical Research Institute, Weill Medical College of Cornell University
  • "A high throughput small molecule screening platform for potential Rett syndrome MBD mutation therapeutics", Yi Eve Sun, MD, PhD, University of California, Los Angeles
  • "Evaluating carbonic anhydrase inhibitors as potential treatments for Rett syndrome", Liang Zhang, MD, PhD, University Health Network, Toronto Western Hospital

Earlier this year, IRSF announced funding of the first ANGEL award totaling $446,000 to support a program testing new treatments for breathing dysfunction in Rett syndrome to David Katz PhD, Case Western Reserve University.

Dr. Antony Horton IRSF Chief Scientific Officer commented, "Together these new basic and translational research awards are beginning to fulfill the promise of our 'Research to Reality' campaign which seeks to move discoveries out of the lab and translate them into new medicines for Rett syndrome." Dr. Horton added "In addition to this announce
