The Landscape

Glut1 Deficiency Research

We're driving progress in the search for treatments and cures.


Our Plan

Explore the Research Compass

Rare disease research is hard. We want to make the best use of limited time and resources to bring the most meaningful help and hope to our patients and families. That’s why we created the Research Compass: a list of critical research questions and the tools needed to answer them.

We will continually add publications, projects, people, and places to create a comprehensive information hub—so information is easily accessible and researchers can connect and collaborate. Please let us know if you'd like to be included!

Help advance research.

Participate in the Natural History Study

Share your experiences as a patient or caregiver so all of us can better understand all the aspects of this rare disease and find better ways to diagnose and treat it.

Contribute to the Biobank Repository

Learn more about our partnerships to establish biobank repositories so researchers have easy access to diverse patient samples to study so they can better understand disease mechanisms.

Contribute to the Brain Bank

Support research about rare neurological diseases like Glut1 Deficiency by enrolling in the brain bank donation program at UT Southwestern under the direction of Dr. Juan Pascual.

Support the Million Dollar Bike Ride

Join Team Glut1 in the Million Dollar Bike Ride to help raise money for a Glut1 Deficiency research grant with matching funds from the Penn Medicine Orphan Disease Center.

Our work is not done.

Until there is a cure for Glut1 Deficiency, we will continue to fund research and drive progress. Join us on this mission.
