Research Participants Needed
The National Ataxia Foundation is committed to providing information to those affected by ataxia including the availability of research studies and clinical trials for the study of ataxia.
Below you will find clinical trials and research opportunities for those with various types of ataxia. These trials have been approved and monitored by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to make sure the risks are as low as possible and are worth any potential benefits.
