Exceptional care, groundbreaking research
The Washington University NF Center is focused on accelerating the pace of scientific discovery and its application to the care of individuals with NF.
Dr. David Gutmann, NF Center Director, was recently awarded the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke Research Program Award (RPA) grant to further his work on understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie brain dysfunction in NF1.
On November 11, 2016, the Walk family visited the Washington University NF Center to celebrate another successful fuNFest event.
