RESEARCH: CURRENT AWARDS

The Neuropathy Association encourages and supports research to better understand neuropathy’s many causes and, in turn, pave the path for more effective therapies and a cure for neuropathy. The Association provides funding for promising scientific research grants that awarded annually based on the recommendations of its Research Advisory Committee comprised of prominent neurologists and researchers in the field.
