About SCAsource

SCAsource is a website where research on SCAs and related ataxias is written in plain language by SCA scientists. Our goal is to make research more readily accessible and understandable to ataxia patients and families. All SCAsource content is free to use and share on other websites and through social media.

The idea for SCAsource came from discussion at the 2018 Ataxia Investigators Meeting run by the National Ataxia Foundation. The website was officially launched on September 27, 2018.

SCAsource is entirely run by volunteers, primarily graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in laboratories which study Spinocerebellar Ataxias. Please take a look around the site, we hope you find our content informative and helpful.
