Dear friends,

The 'Virtual Research' section of the FA App has gone live with the first academic research trial that you can enroll in and participate in directly via your phone.

Log in to the FA App and click on 'Research' and 'Virtual' and see the new study which has been posted. If you have removed The FA App from your phone, you can reinstall from the App Store or Google Play and login.

This first study required 15 FAers and 15 control subjects per age bracket. Thanks to all the FAers who have already enrolled and helped the study to reach its target for participants with FA in just a few weeks. The study is in need of more control subjects. We anticipate more virtual research opportunities in the future and new features based on community feedback.


Jennifer Farmer,
FARA Chief Executive Officer
