Against this backdrop, two gene therapy clinical trials were underway, made possible by the dedication of RSRT-funded researchers. The urgency to sustain the momentum toward a cure for Rett syndrome had never been greater. Through the support of generous sponsors and donations, the journey toward a cure for Rett syndrome continued, and the support, at the highest possible level, was immensely valuable and deeply appreciated.

The event included a special tribute to Alba Tull, a truly generous benefactor of RSRT, making the evening even more memorable. It was an evening filled with inspiration and excitement, and we were thrilled to have everyone join us as we collectively moved forward in the quest to find a cure for Rett syndrome.
