In 2022, the Foundation embarked on fundraising endeavors aimed at research dedicated to advancing treatments and diagnostics for Multifocal Motor Neuropathy (MMN). We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our community for their unwavering support and contributions during MMN Awareness Month this February. Thanks to these collective efforts, and to the innovative research being conducted in the field of peripheral neuropathy, we are proud to announce our first MMN Research Grant—a one-year, $50,000 grant for the following study: Anti-GM1 neuropathies, from antibodies to phenotype.
