Help Us Advance Essential Tremor Research

Advancing innovative essential tremor (ET) research is one of the best ways we can provide support and hope to the ET community worldwide.

Until there are more safe, effective treatments—and ultimately a cure—the International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF) is committed to advocating for more research, recruiting for studies and funding grants.

“Increased public awareness and research funding are necessary for effective research,” said Rodger J. Elble, MD, PhD, Professor of Neurology at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine and member of the IETF’s Medical Advisory Board. “The IETF has played an invaluable role in advocating for research and in funding pilot projects by new investigators.”

Because of your generosity, the IETF has awarded more than $900,000 to research studies. Click here to read about our most recent grant recipient.

It takes all of us contributing what we can to keep research and the potential for new discoveries moving forward. Help us advance ET research by making a donation to our research program. 100% of your tax-deductible donation will be used for ET research.
