As I explained in previous sections, given that GSD type 1b is a very rare disease, there is a clear lack of funds which are urgently needed in order to move forward the ongoing research.

This is why we would like to kindly request your support making a donation and forwarding this website to your contacts so that, through a joint effort, we manage to raise awareness and support the research. All funds will be used to fund the research on GSD 1b by Doctor Weinstein’s team in the University of Connecticut (UCONN) about whom you can find more information in the following link: UCONN Health

To make it as easy as possible we give you different possibilities to donate. As a first one, I would like to propose a direct donation to the Nina Contreras D’Agosto Fund that the UCONN has created in the following link: DONATE to Nina Contreras D’Agosto fund for GSD 1b research at UCONN

If you prefer Paypal, click the “Donate” button and you will be able to donate with credit or debit card or through a Paypal account. Paypal charges 3,4% commission plus 0,35 Euro per donation (i.e. If you enter 100 USD Paypal will charge 3,75 USD so 96,25 USD will be received):






If you prefer donating through a bank transfer please use the following details. All donations received will be sent to UCONN:

  • IBAN: ES22 1465 0380 45 1728079845
  • Account number: 1465 0380 45 1728079845
  • BIC code: INGDESMMXXX
  • Account holder: Enrique Landelino Contreras Pulido  Coholder: Marta D’Agosto

No matter the option you choose, all funds will be entirely dedicated to GSD 1b research. We will publish details about the donations received and which part of the research they are funding. You will certainly have guarantees that your donation has been properly used.

Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart.

A big NinaHug.
