Understanding of Cutaneous Neurofibromas Award

Neurofibromatosis Therapeutic Acceleration Program (NTAP) launched a new research program focused on understanding the pathogenesis of cutaneous neurofibromas.  NTAP is a philanthropic research entity based at Johns Hopkins University dedicated to the discovery of therapeutics for the peripheral nerve tumors that afflict people with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1).  This research program sets the blueprint for improving therapeutics for these tumors by encouraging research proposals that improve the understanding of cutaneous neurofibromas.
