Snyder-Robinson Syndrome
Snyder-Robinson Syndrome (SRS) is a very rare genetic disorder. SRS causes intellectual disability, seizure disorders, hypotonia, osteoporosis, and other medical problems. Some SRS patients can't walk or talk. Its effects can be devastating.

We're very hopeful that we'll soon develop treatments for SRS that will help our loved ones who struggle with this disease - with the help of our brilliant researchers and you, our generous donors!
Previous MDBR Grants for SRS Research
Over the last 4 years, Team SRS! has raised over $350,000 and funded eight research grants that were awarded to top scientists at leading institutions! Thank you for making this possible!

1) Dimethylspermine (Me2Spm) as a novel treatment approach to restore normal spermidine/spermine ratios in Snyder-Robinson Syndrome (SRS) models - Robert Casero, PhD; John Hopkins University School of Medicine

2) Self-immolating NanoSpermine as a novel treatment approach to restore normal spermine/spermidine ratios in SRS models - Robert Casero, PhD; John Hopkins University School of Medicine

3) Skeletal stem cells to treat the bone defects of patients with SRS -
Fernando Fierro, PhD; University of California, Davis

4) Modelling osteogenesis of SRS patients by targeting Spermine Synthase using CRISPR/Cas9 in human bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells - Fernando Fierro, PhD; University of California, Davis

5) Mechanisms of mitochondrial toxicity in SRS - Grace Zhai, PhD; University of Miami Miller School of Medicine

6) Role of mitochondria and ROS in etiology of SRS - Charles Schwartz, PhD; Greenwood Genetic Center

7) Expanding the Breadth of Metabolite Analysis for SRS - Tim Wood, PhD; Greenwood Genetic Center

The progress we've made, and the hope it represents, would NOT have been possible without support from donors like you and the generosity of Penn Medicine!
100% of donations are used to fund scientific & medical research
Your donation will go directly to fund important research into SRS that has the promise to improve the quality of life of SRS patients, and to try to shed light on a number of more common diseases - and the Penn Medicine's Million Dollar Bike Ride will match your donation!
