NTAP Call for RFAs: Cutaneous Neurofibromas

Neurofibromatosis Therapeutic Acceleration Program (NTAP) is launching a new research program focused on understanding the pathogenesis of cutaneous neurofibromas. NTAP is a philanthropic research entity based at Johns Hopkins University dedicated to the discovery of therapeutics for the peripheral nerve tumors that afflict people with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). Cutaneous neurofibromas represent a major unmet need for NF1 patients. This research program sets the blueprint for improving therapeutics for these tumors by encouraging research proposals that improve the Understanding of Cutaneous Neurofibromas.
