Believe...Pick a stronger word than Hope...Cure.

Blazeman Foundation for ALS "Postdoctoral Fellow", Will Examine a (Protein's) effect in Human Cells.

Your donation dollars go directly to supporting ALS research. One means of support is through the Blazeman Post-Doc position at Brandeis University. Training the next generation of ALS researchers is instrumental for finding a cure.

Blazeman Foundation for ALS, (Postdoctoral Fellow)...will be looking at the role of the protein ( TDP-43 ) in ALS.

Deshpande is the Blazeman Postdoctoral Fellow for ALS Research, a position funded by the Massachusetts-based Blazeman Foundation for ALS. Based on her discoveries of how TDP-43 affects neurons in model organisms, she recently received a Brandeis Provost Research award to further her research on TDP-43 in human cells.

Five years ago we created the Blazeman Post-Doc in the Rodal Lab at Brandies University. This collaboration resulted in many accomplishments. End of year 5 report and summary, overall achievements, and letters of thanks from Drs. Rodal and Deshpande.

Please let us begin by saying...those of us who know and have been personally touched by this disease, ALS... know we can never steady the un-rest of those who will follow...what we can and must do is be strong for one another, believe that one day we will have a we share the belief of..."FREEDOM"...(from ALS)... Thank you all..."athlete warriors"...Jon and the BF-ALS so appreciate all the efforts in raising awareness...supporting we all seek a meaningful treatment and cure for ALS..."so others may live"...G-D bless, Jon, (poet-spirit) and his mom and dad...FREEDOM!!!!!

Mugda Deshpande, Blazeman Postdoctoral Fellow for ALS Research

Modeling ALS using patient-derived stem cells

To translate our novel cellular pathways in ALS pathogenesis from fruit-flies and rats into therapies, the important next question to address is, how relevant these pathways are for progression of cellular pathology in human patients, whether they are perturbed similarly and result in equivalent cellular defects.

The mission of the Blazeman Foundation for ALS is 1) to raise awareness about ALS by leveraging the energy, commitment and compassion of the multi-sport community and 2) to raise necessary funds to be directed into cutting-edge scientific research to find treatments and an eventual cure for ALS…“So Others May Live®“.

Deshpande plans to study the defects that arise when human neurons develop while harboring a genetic mutation in the TDP-43 gene. “We need to gain an understanding of what’s going on,” she says. “Without that, we are not going to get a therapy” for ALS.
