$8 million for TSC research in the U.S!

Congratulations to our friends at TSC Alliance who have secured an appropriation of $8 million for the Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Research Program (TSCRP) at the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).

This most recent action brings the total appropriation for the TSCRP since fiscal year 2002 to $121 million

TSC Alliance say:

This was the tightest fiscal environment in which we have ever advocated for our request, and despite this difficult political and fiscal environment, there was strong bipartisan support for the TSCRP in the House and the Senate. This support would not have been possible without the amazing efforts of our volunteers across the country who marched on Capitol Hill, held virtual meetings, met with their elected officials back home, and communicated electronically with Congress throughout the year about the importance of maintaining this invaluable program.
