CRF Research Insights – Your Donations at Work!

Did you know that CRF is the largest fund provider of cystinosis research in the world?  We have funded over 206 multi-year grants in 12 countries. When we started in 2003 there were a handful of researchers studying cystinosis but because of your support, we now have hundreds of researchers working every day to find better treatments and a cure.  In June and July, we issued grant payments to Stéphanie Cherqui, PhD, Francesco Bellomo, PhD, and Francesco Emma, MD, PhD, and Matias Simons, MD, totaling $178,017.18.  You have helped us create a synergistic global research community, thank you!
