Beyond Batten Disease Foundation and American Brain Foundation Launch First Clinical Research Fellowship to Treat and Cure Juvenile Batten Disease
Date:6/26/2012

kovich says new, published findings significantly advance the scientific and medical communities’ understanding of the disorder. She also notes that database resources and bioinformatics (the application of computer science and information technology to the fields of biology and medicine) now provide researchers with unprecedented access to information on Batten disease-relevant topics. Additionally, automation technology – standard in the pharmaceutical industry – has become available to academia, enabling non-commercial researchers to test thousands of potential drugs during the earliest phases of investigation.

“We’re thrilled to partner with the American Brain Foundation, especially given these developments which open new opportunities to make major headway in research to treat and cure juvenile Batten disease,” said Kerkovich. “Having pharma-grade tools will accelerate the development of lifesaving drugs from the research lab into the clinic to treat young patients.”

The fellowship also is a move to cultivate juvenile Batten disease clinician scientists. American Brain Foundation fellowships attract the top research talent and provide a proven starting point for clinical scientists to build competitive careers in translational research. These fellows have gone on to receive more than $23 million in NIH funding to study diseases that affect the brain and spinal cord.

“We likewise are excited about the fellowship with Beyond Batten Disease Foundation – it helps advance our mission which is to support vital research and education to discover causes, improved treatments and cures for brain and other nervous system diseases,” said John Mazziotta, MD, PhD, Chair of the American Brain Foundation's Board of Trustees and Professor and Chair of UCLA's Department of Neurology and Brain Mapping Center in Los Angeles. “It’s particularly important to support research on Batten disease and other rare, neurological disorders – the so-called ‘orphan
