Since 1990, we have been investing in the best research to find cures for rare genetic diseases. Because these diseases are so rare, often times there is no research being done on them, never mind therapeutic options or a cure. We want to change this state of affairs because we believe that every person is worth fighting for. We focus on transforming the results of excellent scientific research projects, selected and supported over time, into accessible treatments. Finding a cure is not the final destination but a new starting point. We have to make every possible effort to guarantee that successful forms of treatment discovered through the research funded by Telethon are then made available to all patients. For this reason we also work to develop partnerships with public health care institutions and pharmaceutical companies, so that the results of our research will translate to treatment and medicine accessible to all patients worldwide.
