- further our understanding of the disease mechanisms for all or any of the Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinoses (NCLs);
- advance therapeutic strategies; or
- improve current diagnosis, treatment, education and/or management practices or family support practices (including those that improve quality of life, palliative care or other).
