SMA Tissue Repositories

SMA Foundation

Several biorepositories supported by the SMA Foundation and the National Institutes of Health are actively engaged in collecting, preserving, and distributing cells and tissues from SMA patients to qualified scientific investigators. These specimens are used in research to explore the biology of SMA, and to develop and test new therapeutic interventions. If you are an SMA patient or family member interested in contributing to SMA research by donating a blood or tissue sample, please visit the websites below:
