A Note from the Research Chair

Our TMS RESEARCH FUND supports the amazing work done by leading mast cell disease researchers. Our TMS GENERAL FUND supports all other TMS initiatives and activities, including EDUCATION and SUPPORT of patients, caregivers and physicians, our ADVOCACY on Capitol Hill and our RESEARCH Committee work. Please consider donating to one or both of these vital funds.

Hello Everyone! Welcome to the Research section of our TMS website.  In this section, we will keep you updated on our various Research activities and hope to provide you with the resources you need to do your own research and share valuable information with your physicians, as an informed patient or caregiver. Perhaps you are a physician, trying to find information to help your patients or wanting to learn more about our activities, or are an industry representative, trying to more quickly locate the most helpful information for a potential project. If you find this site useful, please consider a donation to support our work, as none of this would be possible without YOUR help!

Our mission is one of research, education, advocacy and support. These are tight times, financially, for our researchers. Especially for those focused specifically on human mast cell diseases, funding can be very difficult to obtain. TMS offers Research Grants to those involved in mast cell disease research. Donations to our TMS RESEARCH FUND will go to support the work of our dedicated researchers. Donations to our TMS GENERAL FUND support all the activities in which TMS is involved, including the work of our TMS Research Committee. If we work together and support each other, we can make a HUGE difference for our Mast Cell Disease Community in all of these areas!
