In Pursuit of a Cure
The IFOPA has been funding FOP research since 1990. In 2020, we celebrate 30 years of funding research at the University of Pennsylvania! It’s the dedication and generosity of our amazing FOP community that allows us to expand the research we fund in search of treatments and a cure.
This year we’re launching the In Pursuit of a Cure Campaign to fund new ACT for FOP competitive research grants and the IFOPA’s first-ever targeted research grant in gene therapy.
Gene therapy doesn’t replace drug development or current and future clinical trials. But if successful, gene therapy has the potential to cure FOP. We can search for treatments and a cure together!
GET THE FACTS.
Learn more about gene therapy by a short video on our site and attending a webinar on August 13
