In just 10 years, since we founded PRF and there were no resources for these children, we have gone from gene finding to the first clinical trial in Progeria. We are now being hailed as a model for disease-research orgs. and a prime example of successful translational research, moving from the lab to treatments at a pace virtually unheard of in the scientific community. And while helping this handful of children, the connection of Progeria to common heart disease and aging has tremendous implications for us all.

Enjoy this timeline that highlights PRF’s achievements, and THANK YOU for helping to make this tremendous progress possible!

“As Board Chair and Dad, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the past 10 years and thank you all for your support of PRF and of my family. With your help, we have made many significant strides over the past 10 years...currently in the midst of the first clinical drug trial. Thank you for everything that you do to help children with Progeria. Onward... to the cure! Happy Anniversary!”
