Allen Institute for Brain Science Launches Three New Landmark Atlas Projects Focusing on the Human Brain, Developing Brain and Spinal Cord
Date:3/12/2008

or diseases found in humans. The atlas holds great promise for furthering understanding of diseases and disorders affecting the spinal cord -- including ALS, multiple sclerosis, Spinal Muscular Atrophy and spinal cord injuries -- and pointing the way for effective treatments.

The ABA-Spinal Cord is funded by a group of disease organizations, foundations, and corporate and private donors. The Institute will continue seeking support from individuals and organizations for the spinal cord atlas project.

"We are excited to see such a diverse array of funders come forward with the shared goal of supporting this project to advance spinal cord research," said Elaine Jones. "This is an example of individuals and organizations coming together to fund an important project that will empower scientists and have far-reaching impacts on spinal cord research in the future. We look forward to building similar funding groups for our human brain atlas, developing brain atlas and other projects moving forward."

About the Allen Institute for Brain Science

Launched in 2003, the Seattle-based Allen Institute for Brain Science is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit medical research organization dedicated to advancing brain research. Started with $100 million in seed money from philanthropist Paul G. Allen, the Institute takes on projects at the leading edge of science-far-reaching projects at the intersection of biology and technology. The resulting data create publicly available resources that fuel discovery for countless other researchers worldwide.
