Spotlight on Research
It is an exciting time for Angelman syndrome research!
On the heels of the ASF National Walk, the ASF issued a call for proposals to fund up to
$1 million in AS research for the third year in a row.
The ASF also recently issued its call for applications for the Joseph E. Wagstaff Postdoctoral Fellowship, which funds young researchers pursuing a career in AS research with $110,000 for two years.
The ASF/Dup15q Alliance Scientific Symposium, the largest annual gathering of AS researchers, commences in August!
Help Us Give Them a Reason to Smile.
The smiles on the faces of individuals with Angelman syndrome (AS) belie a life marked by severe developmental delay, speech difficulties, seizure disorders and more. And yet, they go on smiling. That’s just one reason the Angelman Syndrome Foundation seeks to advance the awareness, understanding and treatment of AS, with the ultimate goal of finding a cure.
Made up of families, caregivers and medical professionals who care about those with Angelman syndrome, the Foundation is a national 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to support individuals with AS, their families and others who care. With your help, we can all give them a reason to smile.
