The Treatments of Tomorrow

At the Washington University NF Center, we are focused on accelerating the pace of scientific discovery and its application to the care of individuals with NF. We continually strive to eliminate obstacles to research and establish a framework for innovative scientific collaboration among investigators using groundbreaking research and medical technologies.

Through our research, we aim to achieve three major goals to improve the lives of people living with NF:

  1. Discover the factors that contribute to the clinical variability seen in individuals with NF
  2. Determine which medical problems are likely to occur and require therapy in each person with NF
  3. Identify new therapies that specifically treat NF-related medical problems
