Ataxia UK aims to support research in a variety of ways, including providing funding, helping to recruit participants with ataxia to studies, providing information about ataxia research developments and resources and acting as a facilitator. Due to the fact that we are a patient support group, we can also provide advice and act as a link between researchers and people with ataxia. We also host and support research conferences, such as the International Ataxia Research Conference 2015. Please see our Research Strategy for more information.
