2012 Research Grant Announcement

The board of O.R.S.A. unanimously approved the funding of up to $25,000.00 to sponsor the second Canadian Rett Syndrome Research Scientific meeting held on Thursday, April 26th, 2012.  Over twenty-five researchers from across Canada came together at the Delta Meadowvale Hotel to meet each other, to share their RTT research project and to generate future research collaborations.  In 2006 the first Canadian Rett Syndrome Research meeting was held in Vancouver, BC.  O.R.S.A. provided funds towards the 2006 meeting. As expected the 2012 scientific meeting was a huge success. The difference from the 2006 meeting is there are over double the amount of researchers attending.  Rett syndrome research in Canada is expanding rapidly. Findings from Canadian research projects are providing vital information to the world wide research community. O.R.S.A. is proud to fund and host this event and to support Canadian Rett syndrome research.
