BENEFITING: DUP 15Q ALLIANCE
Did you know that the research that DUP15q Alliance funds could help those who present on the Autism Spectrum Disorder? I'm fundraising for the DUP15q Alliance in honor of my nephew Nicholas who is a DUP15q child. As part of their mission, Dup15q Alliance seeks to unite families, researchers, and professionals; and promote research, awareness, and understanding of chromosome 15q duplication syndrome and related disorders. Dup15q Alliance formally endorses and funds research and collaborates with researchers interested in research on chromosome 15q duplications by disseminating research information and promoting opportunities for Dup15q.
Dup15q Alliance helps fund scientific meetings, conferences, studies such as the rat model, and 15q and autism linkage.
Research funded by the DUP15q Alliance not only helps DUP15q children, but families with children who present on the Austism spectrum. Below is a link about the Mouse project. “Dr. Dindot’s work on mouse models for Dup15q syndrome has the potential to unlock new pathways of discovery for treatments and therapies for autism spectrum disorders,” said Dr. Robert Burghardt, Acting Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies."
