The CMTRF has joined the European Charcot-Marie-Tooth Federation (ECMTF), a voluntary non-profit federation based in Belgium, created to unite advocacy groups that raise awareness, fund research, and promote better care for people with CMT. Among the primary goals of the ECMTF are funding research projects that are beyond the scope of the individual organizations and promoting communication and collaboration between researchers, specialists, clinicians, and CMT organizations. This aligns closely with CMTRF’s mission to raise funds to invest in science that will lead to treatments and cures for CMT And introduce CMT to the greater drug development community, something that has rapidly increased the number of experts working to solve the disease.
