Research Grants Awarded
The United Leukodystrophy Foundation is proud to announce its grants, which were recently awarded to two prominent researchers for their promising projects:
- Dr. Adeline Vanderver with Children’s National Health System for her study of “Unclassified Leukodystrophie and Leukoencephalopathies: Compassionate Access to State-of-the-art Diagnostic Care.”
- Dr. Weston Miller at the University of Minnesota for his work on “Characterization of the Frequency and Function of CD4+ Regulatory T-cells in Boys with Cerebral Adrenoleukodsytrophy.”
The ULF wishes them well with their research, as they seek to improve the lives of those affected by the leukodystrophies.

The United Leukodystrophy Foundation (ULF), incorporated in 1982, is a non-profit, voluntary health organization dedicated to providing patients and their families with information about their disease and assistance in identifying sources of medical care, social services, and genetic counseling; establishing a communication network among families; increasing public awareness and acting as an information source for health care providers; and promoting and supporting research into causes, treatments, and prevention of the leukodystrophies.
Leukodystrophies make up a group of genetic nervous system disorders affecting the myelin sheath, which insulates the axon through which nerve impulses are conducted.
The ULF is supported solely by individual donations and corporate support.
The United Leukodystrophy Foundation serves individuals and families affected by leukodystrophy by exchanging information and promoting progress on research, treatment, and prevention.
