Action for A-T is a medical research charity committed to funding high quality research projects that have the potential to advance understanding of A-T and lead to treatments and cures. A-T (ataxia-telangiectasia) is a rare, genetic degenerative disease of childhood, which affects multiple systems of the body. The charity is exclusively dedicated to funding scientific and medical research into A-T; as well as working to drive research and awareness of the condition. Action for A-T was established in 2012 to increase investment into A-T research in the UK and aims to make a difference to the lives of those affected by the condition.
