Mission and Vision
ISMRD is the leading advocate for families worldwide affected by a Glycoprotein Storage Disease. Through partnerships built with medicine, science and industry, we seek to detect and cure these diseases, and to provide a global network of support and information.
We seek a future in which children with Glycoprotein Storage Diseases can be detected early, treated effectively, and go on to live long, healthy and productive lives; a future where doctors and other clinicians are knowledgeable of and able to detect these genetic defects efficiently and with accuracy. In our vision the public at-large will have a general knowledge and understanding of these diseases, and will actively strive to prevent their occurrence. Ultimately, we envision a world where there will no longer be a need for our organization or others like it to exist.
