Dysautonomia International's #1 priority is funding medical research that advances our understanding of autonomic disorders and brings us one step closer to a cure. Learn more about our research grant program.
Dysautonomia International's Patient Powered Research
In July of 2014, we published our first research study designed and implemented by dysautonomia patients: Physician Patient Interaction in Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. While Dysautonomia International will always support the fantastic research on autonomic disorders being carried out at prestigious universities, we believe that patients are a great untapped reservoir of knowledge about their medical condition.
Participate in Research
Dysautonomia International's number one goal is to raise funds to promote additional research on autonomic disorders. However, no matter how much money we raise, the researchers doing this research still need patients to participate in their clinical trials and other types of studies. Some studies require you to visit the researcher's office, while others can be done from home or at your local doctor's office.
