 Rett Syndrome Research Trust

Rett Syndrome Research Trust

The Rett Syndrome Research Trust (RSRT) was created in 2008 to achieve one goal – a cure for Rett Syndrome. To date, we have invested more than $42 million, more than any other Rett organization in the world, to advance research towards that goal. During the second half of 2016 RSRT undertook an internal review of our projects coupled with a comprehensive external research landscape analysis. This led to the development of a bold three-year, $33 million strategic research plan called Roadmap to a Cure. The plan, which was publicly announced in March of 2017, prioritizes potentially curative approaches. Gene therapy, which scientific data strongly indicates could successfully reverse the symptoms of Rett in those afflicted, is the lead program of Roadmap to a Cure. The expectation is that we will advance to the first clinical trials for Rett in gene therapy. RSRT is an exceptionally lean and efficient non-profit, with an average of 96% of funding going directly to its research program. RSRT is tremendously grateful for its alliances with RMRA and other Rett organizations across the U.S. and around the world, and for the support of thousands of affected families and their networks.
