The Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) has supported and stimulated dystonia research for 40+ years.
DMRF-funded research has led to a better overall understanding of dystonia as well as breakthroughs in genetics and therapeutics. The funding investigators obtain from the DMRF often serves as seed money that ultimately positions them to earn more robust funding from agencies such as the National Institutes of Health and Department of Defense.
The Medical & Scientific Advisory Council (MSAC) is comprised of pre-eminent researchers and clinicians from various scientific disciplines. The members are responsible for setting the direction of research efforts to find more effective treatments and ultimately a cure.
