Accelerate the discovery of therapies for Wolfram syndrome
Help the dedicated international scientific and medical community in its search for therapies against Wolfram syndrome.
This new Call for Wolfram syndrome projects will be open to any research project (those of a collaborative nature are encouraged) aimed at finding a therapy for Wolfram syndrome (WS). Priority will be given to projects concentrating on approaches for therapy of WS (classical pharmacological approaches, gene therapy, cell therapy and any other innovative therapies). However, projects addressing bottlenecks impairing rapid clinical trials may also be considered, including: innovative outcome measures & endpoints, appropriate methodology to follow disease progression and treatment effect.
Time being critical for people with Wolfram syndrome, preferences will be given to projects that have the greatest potential to accelerate the identification of effective treatments.
