Stop SMA’s Grant Funding to Support Dr. Swoboda’s Research

Every day in March, members of Andy’s Army took a few moments to place an online vote for Stop SMA  in the $250K  Pepsi Refresh Project. Thanks to your support, Stop SMA now is an official grant recipient.

The non-profit organization plans to contribute the grant funding to a current study involving Sodium Phenylbutyrate that is being conducted by the laboratory of Dr. Kathy Swoboda at University of Utah School of Medicine. This is an exceptionally powerful trial that addresses several fundamental aspects of SMA biology and SMA clinical trial design. Dr. Swoboda’s work is ready and ongoing in the clinic, meaning that this grant will have an immediate effect for participating SMA children and their families.

Thank you again for your willingness to vote and for your support of our efforts to find a cure!
