Research & Medical

For almost 50 years, Tourette Association has led the way in research and therapeutic development for Tourette Syndrome and other Tic Disorders. The TAA has awarded $21 million to over 450 research projects across 16 countries. Every $1 of TAA grant funding has helped investigators obtain approximately $10 in grant funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The scope of our work resonates beyond the United States to those affected globally. We continue to establish both national and international alliances, along with recognized experts, who can work together on shared goals to better treat and understand Tourette Syndrome.

When you invest in research, there is a clear and direct impact on the lives of individuals with TS.
