  • Mission statement

    Reverse Rett is a UK medical research charity working to speed treatments and a cure for Rett Syndrome.

    Rett Syndrome has already been reversed in the lab. We work to drive these promising lab developments into tangible treatments and a cure for people living with Rett Syndrome today.

    Reverse Rett is the only UK charity currently funding research focused on treatments and a cure for Rett Syndrome.

    Our Purpose

    Reverse Rett exists to accelerate treatments and a cure for Rett Syndrome.

    We fund international Rett Syndrome research through our longstanding partnership with the US based, Rett Syndrome Research Trust (RSRT) who are responsible for peer review and monitoring of those projects.

    Our UK work has a translational impact with clear patient benefits. We work to ensure that as treatments and a cure for Rett Syndrome become viable, they are accessible to patients in the UK. We do this by funding some UK clinical work, supporting treatment-focused UK clinicians and supporting UK clinical trials.

    Our mission

    Our mission is to speed treatments and cures for Rett Syndrome and related MECP2 disorders by funding research that will have a practical and positive effect on our children’s lives.

    We fund research from basic science to clinical trials, and work to facilitate the translation of this work to clinical applications for people with Rett Syndrome and related MECP2 disorders
