May is ALS Awareness Month!

Many events are organized worldwide in May to raise awareness for ALS. For those of you who'd like to participate, we invite you to look into a couple of events organized by two organizations which generously support our ALS research program!

For those of you of prefer to make a direct contribution, you can make a donation to our lab here. 100% of your donation will go directly to ALS research (no salary or other administrative costs) and will directly support the development of our gene therapy program for SOD1-linked ALS. To learn more, you can read our latest publication here.

In addition, every quarter we randomly select one of our donors who gets the chance to come to our lab with three guests and be presented all of our latest ALS research results!

thank you for your support
