  • What is GT?

    Glanzmann's Thrombasthenia (GT) is an extremely rare, autosomal recessive disorder of the blood in which the platelets lack GPIIb/IIIa. Hence, no fibrinogen bridging can occur, and bleeding time is significantly prolonged. GT can be life-threatening. Like Bernard-Soulier Syndrome, carriers experience bruising, nosebleeds, and bleeding in the mouth and gums.

  • Our Mission & History

    The Glanzmann’s Research Foundation exists to:

    • Increase awareness of Glanzmann’s Thrombasthenia
    • Provide a network of support for families navigating a GT diagnosis
    • Raise funding to find a cure
  • Our Board Members

    Glanzmann’s Research Foundation would not be where it is today without our Board, which comprises individuals from across the U.S. who have been affected by GT in one way or another. Get to know these passionate people here!

  • 2023 GRF Educational Conference

    The Glanzmann’s Research Foundation is proud to present our first Educational Conference from July 26 to July 29, 2023, at the Cambria Hotel in Somerville, Massachusetts.
