The core mission of the IRSF is to fund research for treatments and a cure for Rett syndrome while enhancing the overall quality of life for those living with Rett syndrome by providing information, programs, and services. In 1983, a small dedicated group of parents whose children had Rett syndrome formed the first non-profit to focus exclusively on Rett syndrome – International Rett Syndrome Association (IRSA). In 2007, IRSA and Rett Syndrome Research Foundation (RSRF) consolidated resources to better serve families and maximize research investments toward a cure. The International Rett Syndrome Foundation (IRSF) emerged with a mission to accelerate research and empower families that builds upon these foundations’ pioneering work toward care and cure. We are walking this journey with you. IRSF is comprised of parents and friends of those diagnosed with Rett syndrome. We are dedicated to empowering families with the latest medical information, offering meaningful support and resources, and advocating for all those living with Rett syndrome. Our strategy is simple but powerful: improve care today and create treatments for tomorrow. IRSF is committed to a full-spectrum approach, providing solutions for everyone living with Rett syndrome. We do this by investing in innovative research, working to build a robust treatment pipeline, and removing barriers to ensure clinical trial success.
