Donate to BPAN research

BPAN is a rare genetic condition, but new families are continually being identified thanks to modern genomic sequencing technology.

Currently there are no drugs that can cure or even slow the progression of this devastating disorder, as little is known about its biology. Current treatments only aim to alleviate symptoms. There is a critical need for research to develop improved treatments and methods of intervention and prevention.

MCRI has developed a new research program using a patient’s own cells to understand how the faults in the WDR45 gene lead to BPAN, and test novel treatments that could one day be used in these same patients. These advances will improve long term health outcomes for this vulnerable group of children, and may potentially offer unprecedented and life changing opportunities for individuals and families affected by BPAN.

Donate today and help our dedicated researchers and clinicians continue their ground-breaking work into BPAN, and help find the answers needed to change the future for our children like Angus.
