STEP UP TO CURE ALS
The Angel Fund is embarking on a ambitious venture. We are launching a $4,000,000 campaign that will raise funds for Dr. Robert H. Brown, Jr. and his research team to take the research to human trials!
Dr. Brown and the UMass Gene Therapy Center team are working on exciting cutting-edge research using gene therapy to silence ALS genes.
This approach to silencing genes that cause nerve degeneration in the brain and spinal cord can potentially benefit other disorders, such as some forms of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's or Huntington's disease.
The Angel Fund's goal is to bring the research to human trials as quickly as possible.
We are exited to launch this campaign at the Walk. With your help and the money you raise as part of our Walk of Hope, we'll be on our way!!
