We are leading the country in understanding the mechanisms causing hereditary ataxia and developing novel therapies for this disorder. Progressive Cerebellar Ataxia is a relatively rare clinical syndrome for which curative therapies are often not available.
Some types of ataxias are inherited, with the most common forms resulting from specific gene defects that generate neurotoxic proteins. The University of the Michigan Medical School is widely recognized as a national leader in both ataxia care and research.
