ALS Research update from Brandeis University...(ALS Research Labs).

Dr. Rodal’s lab continues to investigate  how TDP-43 leads to growth signaling defects in the fruit fly model as well as  continuing to pursue the role of calcium channels in their mammalian models of ALS. Their progress report summarizes the past four years of research supported by the BMF and gives a look into next steps (how relevant are these pathways for progression of cellular pathology in human patients?). For a more detailed version of their work, please see the unabridged version.

Thanks to our preliminary data and support from the Blazeman Foundation for ALS, Dr.

Deshpande has obtained a grant from the Brandeis Provost’s Innovation Fund to test our

hypotheses in neurons differentiated from ALS patient cells.
