The Guthy-Jackson Charitable Foundation spearheads bold new science to drive quantum leaps that solve NMO – and serves as a model for solving all autoimmune diseases worldwide. Among these strategies is the promise of tolerization to target precise causes of autoimmune disease and turn them off – improving health and sparing side effects. Beyond treatment, medicine has entered a bold new era of immune modulation aimed at permanently curing autoimmune disease. From smart drugs to inverse vaccines – from gene therapy to disease prevention – we have the opportunity to work together to solve NMO and defeat autoimmune diseases. We are Cureageous TM.

The GJCF has been a leader in the field of tolerization for NMOSD and MOGAD.  It held its first Summit for NMOSD Tolerization in 2014. GJCF brought the Immune Tolerance Network and the National Institutes of Health together with early-stage biotech companies for its 2nd Summit for NMOSD Tolerization in 2018. Tremendous progress has been made in the field of immune tolerization since our first Summit.  We are excited to be planning our 3rd Summit for NMOSD Tolerization in Q1 of 2023 !
