" The BF-ALS @ Brandeis is critical to the ALS research and training the next generation of ALS researchers"

Robert Blais Our foundation"s support has and is around "basic science research", this is where the discoveries are found, then the practical application may be applied...a # of genes have been "isolated" the triggers of theses genes in terms of "turing on" the cause of what develops, "we must continue the good fight"...FREEDOM...(from ALS)...thank you all who are working towards a solution...G-D bless, your friend, "the-blazeman"...(alswarriorpoet-spirit).

Year 3 results

Rerouting BMP receptor traffic suppresses synaptic growth defects in an ALS model: A

manuscript describing the results of our work on growth factor signaling and membrane traffic in

a fruit fly model of ALS has been submitted. In this manuscript, we describe the finding that

growth factor signaling is reduced in ALS models, define the specific points of the membrane

transport process that are disrupted, and show that rerouting membrane traffic can restore growth

factor signaling, synaptic growth, and motor function. These results show where and how we can

alter membrane trafficking pathways to rescue motor neuron defects in ALS, and will guide our

next steps in the mammalian system.
