Research

One of the most important things we do is to fund and promote research to help develop better treatments and ultimately a 'cure' for A-T.

The A-T Society continues to invest in research and is proud to have invested over £1.5 million in research over the years. We have funded basic research, clinical trials, research posts, equipment and specialist A-T conferences. During the past year, we supported 10 different research projects, mostly with funding, but we also provide other forms of practical support to researchers. Read more about the Research projects we support.

However, our support to A-T research goes far beyond funding. We work  to draw new researchers and funding into A-T research, identify likely areas of progress and commission research there, improve international collaboration and more. Read more about Our other research work and our Research Strategy.

Many people are very interested in A-T research but find it hard to get their head around all the different areas of work and concepts. In this section, we try to give an overview of the different areas of A-T research in language which the non-scientist can understand.

If you are a researcher looking for help from the A-T Society, please visit this section to find out How we can support your research.

The A-T Society is a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) and like all AMRC members we support the AMRC position statement on the use of animals in research.
