About Canavan Research Foundation

The Canavan Research Foundation (CRF) supports research seeking treatment or a cure for Canavan disease. Current research projects include gene therapy, stem cell therapy and metabolic approaches. Clinical trials have been ongoing in gene therapy at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital in New Jersey. Family support is also provided through an active web board and educational outreach. The foundation relies principally on private funding, and virtually all-funding goes directly toward research.
