Harvard Medical School and Project A.L.S. join forces to target ALS research

n, HMS professor of neurology, director of the Day Neuromuscular Research Laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital, and a member of the Harvard Center for Neurodegeneration and Repair (HCNR).

HCNR will manage the new initiative. Launched in 2001 to speed translational biomedical neuroscience, HCNR has brought together neuroscientists and neurology researchers working at HMS, its affiliated teaching hospitals, and throughout Harvard. Its strategy is to rapidly apply basic neuroscience discoveries to clinical needs, with an ultimate objective of reducing the impact of neurodegenerative disease, such as ALS.

"At the Harvard Center for Neurodegeneration and Repair, we believe that the fastest way to develop therapies for neurodegenerative diseases is through collaborative translational research," said HCNR director, Dr. Adrian J. Ivinson. "Too many current treatments for neurodegenerative disease tackle only the symptoms. Our translational research seeks cures that strike at the cause of the disease.

"Our alliance with Project A.L.S. reinforces our commitment to open collaboration and will help us reach our shared goals," he said.
