FA Research is a global effort and involves diverse projects and approaches from the lab bench to the clinic. One key feature of the FA research community is collaboration and partnership. We will introduce you to some academic and industry researchers working on FA to demonstrate the range and depth of research projects needed to advance treatments for the condition. In this symposium, you will also learn about each investigator’s personal commitment and passion for FA science and meet a dynamic patient panel who will share their own perspectives on research.
