The FAST IMPACT (Innovative Methods to Advance Angelman Syndrome Treatments Towards Clinical Trials) Award from the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics (FAST) provides funding for translational research projects that move from early studies to potential drugs for clinical trials in Angelman syndrome. The grant encourages innovative proposals focused on moving therapeutic options forward for individuals with Angelman syndrome.
