The International Foundation for CDKL5 Research (IFCR) was incorporated as a non-profit entity in September of 2009. The idea culminated from a group of dedicated parents of CDKL5 children, who dared to dream of something life changing for their children – a cure. The parents realized there was a desperate need for education and research, and this could not be completed without funding. They decided to combine their talents and resources to establish a non-profit foundation to help meet these financial needs. IFCR is committed to collaborating with leading scientists and researchers from around the world who are dedicated to finding a cure for CDKL5.
