The Key Role CMT Patients Play in Research

The Key Role CMT Patients Play in Research

Without your participation, researchers won’t have the essential patient information to develop drugs, gene therapies, and clinical trials for Charcot-Marie-Tooth and other Inherited Neuropathies. In addition, as GRIN grows, we gain greater insights from you as patients to help accelerate therapies for Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) and Inherited Neuropathies.
