  • Funding PFS Research Projects 
  • Building a scientific network for PFS/PSSD/PAS
  • Building a network of volunteers 


We want to initiate the sound scientific investigation of PFS and related disorders. We want to achieve objective diagnostics of PFS, molecular research and finally the development of a cure. Therefore we build a network of scientists and experts, initiate research projects, raise funds for research and build a volunteer network to increase the speed of progress


  • Creating community projects 
  • Building an alliance with other post-drug syndromes 
  • Building a patient registry 
  • Building a PFS biobank network 
  • Getting PFS classified in the ICD and internationally recognized
