Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was present on December 16, 2016 at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital  for the announcement of the donation of $20 million by the Larry and Judy Tanenbaum family. This gift, which McGill University calls “transformative”,  will help to establish the Tanenbaum Open Science Institute, to facilitate the sharing of neuroscience findings worldwide to accelerate the discovery of leading edge therapeutics to treat neurological conditions.

The Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) Canada is the only organization that is dedicated to supporting the 50,000 patients in Canada that suffer from dystonia, a neurological movement disorder that affects the nervous system. Abnormal signaling from the brain causes muscles to tighten and twist involuntarily. There are several forms of dystonia, and dystonia may be a symptom of many diseases and conditions.

For over 40 years, the DMRF Canada has fought for those impacted by dystonia, working toward better treatments and a cure; funding research, providing advocacy and support, and raising awareness of this devastating disorder.

Join us, and be a part of the global effort to find a cure.
