The Yash Gandhi Foundation has awarded half a million dollars in research grants to multiple academic institutions. With the funding of research from the Yash Gandhi Foundation, these institutions have been working in collaboration and conducting research to unravel the molecular basis of I-cell disease and develop new model systems (particularly in zebrafish) to identify how the loss of mannose 6-phosphate lysosomal targeting contributes to the development of disease symptoms. This information may lead to new therapies to treat Mucoliposis. YGF-funded researchers are interested in establishing partnerships with pharmaceutical companies to accelerate therapy.
The Yash Gandhi Foundation has been acknowleged in 8 different research publications. The published manuscripts are outlined below;
