Bienvenue FAST France
FAST is proud to announce the newest addition to its global family: FAST France. Charlotte Prestat and Anthony Moisan, the founders of FAST France, have three children. After receiving a diagnosis of Angelman syndrome in 2017 for their middle daughter Héloïse, the two science-minded engineers researched as much as they could on the syndrome. Their research led them to the 2018 FAST Summit & Gala in Chicago, IL. Between the contagious enthusiasm of the other families and FAST's focus on science and research to find a cure, the couple was convinced they wanted to join FAST's mission. They approached Paula Evans that weekend about starting FAST France. Forming FAST France was an arduous process, but Charlotte and Anthony persevered because they know how important it is to have a local Angelman community of clinicians, researchers and families committed to bringing treatments for people with Angelman syndrome to France. FAST France has three main goals:
- Inform the French speaking community about Angelman syndrome.
- Unite the different players (doctors, scientists, researchers, pharmaceutical companies, biotech companies, institutions) in France and across Europe in preparation for hosting clinical trials.
- Mobilize private and public funding in order to move research and treatments forward in France and Europe in conjunction with FAST.
