Dystonia Medical Research Foundation

Founded in 1976, the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to serving all people with dystonia and their families. Since its inception, the DMRF has grown from a small family-based foundation into a dynamic membership-driven organization led by a Board of Directors and network of volunteers with personal connections to dystonia. Because dystonia hits so close to home for our directors and volunteers, the DMRF leadership is motivated by an unrelenting drive to find a cure and an unwavering commitment to serving people affected by dystonia. Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) prides itself on a long history of supporting dystonia research. Always the primary goal of the DMRF, research has led to a better understanding of dystonia as well as to breakthroughs in genetics and therapeutics.The funding which researchers obtain from the DMRF usually serves as seed money before generating even greater funding from the National Institutes of Health.Beyond the funding of research, the scientific program of the DMRF is multi-faceted, encompassing workshops, a residency elective program, and international medical symposiums, all to further the understanding of dystonia.
