About Us

The Citrin Foundation was set up in late 2016 to tackle citrin deficiency. Our goal is to provide end-to-end support to all citrin deficiency patients around the world, from funding research that drives effective treatments and eventually cure, to providing support to patients and their families. We are a patient-driven, not-for profit organization.
 
The Foundation has already committed approximately USD1m for research projects over the next three years. We plan to invest roughly USD3m to USD5m over the next five years in our phase 1 plan to tackle this condition. 

Our Mission

Our Mission: Citrin Deficiency

Citrin deficiency currently does not receive a lot of attention as it is thought to be a rare genetic condition with no cure for it. We believe, however, that this condition is severely underdiagnosed and underserved, and that our resources and commitment could transform our understanding and treatment of this condition.

We hope to gain a better understanding of the basic medical science, clinical manifestations, relationship between genotype and phenotype of this condition and diet preferences of the patients, with the hope of finding a way to effectively manage the condition and to ultimately find a cure for it.
