MDBR - Glucose Transporter Deficiency Syndrome

Glut 1 DS is a rare genetic disorder caused by a mutation in the SLC2A1 gene, which regulates the glucose transporter type 1 (Glut1).  Glucose is not transported properly into the brain, leaving it starving for the energy it needs to grow & function.   One $48,918 pilot grant is available and will be awarded to research focused on identifying and investigating innovative research projects that involve basic research including blood brain barrier, translational studies, clinical studies, alternative treatment theory, or gene therapy relevant to Glut 1DS.  This grant is made possible by the generous support by friends of Team Miles for Millie.
