To move our knowledge of NF forward many people are needed to participate in research.
There are many ways to participate in neurofibromatosis research. Some may be more invasive such as a clinical trial testing a medication. Some may simply involve answering questions or letting a researcher examine you and follow your case. Some research may provide the benefit of extra care and expertise and may provide vital testing such as MRIs at no cost to the patient. All research advances our understanding of neurofibromatosis to lead to better treatments, more knowledge of how a patient may be affected, and to an eventual cure.
