Become an NF Patient Representative

15 January 2021

As patients and caregivers of those with Neurofibromatosis Type 1, Neurofibromatosis Type 2, or Schwannomatosis, your voices and lived experiences play an important role in determining the direction that research should take!

The REiNS (Response Evaluation in Neurofibromatosis and Schwannomatosis) Collaboration is looking for patients and caregivers to help in the fight to cure all types of NF by helping to design clinical trials.  This is a chance for you to make a real difference in finding treatments for these conditions.  A scientific background is not necessary – lived experience with neurofibromatosis and schwannomatosis is.  We are looking for people from all backgrounds, including people of all genders, races, ethnicities, education level, and health status.

For more information about REiNS, please watch this video at
