One of the chief aims of Tourettes Action is to support research and to seek better treatment and management of Tourette Syndrome (via research into new therapies and potential cures), with a view to improving the lives of those living with TS.

Tourettes Action is the only UK based charity working with families and individuals living with TS, and is therefore well placed to promote and evaluate research.  We are committed to ensuring that our research strategy will help us make a real difference to all people affected by TS.

This page is a central hub for the TS community, research participants, clinicians and researchers; providing information in the following areas:
