The Canadian Chapter of the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation supports and promotes research
to find treatments and a cure for all types of Niemann-Pick Disease, and
we provide support services for individuals and families affected by NPD. Our
Vision...is a world where Niemann-Pick Disease is no longer a threat
to a full and productive life for patients and their families.
Determined to find a treatment for children with the degenerative brain disease Niemann-Pick Type C, Steven Walkley, D.V.M., Ph.D., turned a serendipitous laboratory discovery into a successful national research collaboration with other academic institutions and the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences' program for rare diseases (Therapeutics for Rare and Neglected Diseases).
