ALS Therapy Development Institute Receives $1.6 Million Grant From the Department of Defense for Lou Gehrig's Disease Research
Date:1/12/2010

ongressman Capuano and his staff recognize the need to get out ahead of this issue.  They have been champions for those veterans who have sacrificed for our country, only to come home to face this horrible disease.  We are grateful and mindful of the fact that they believe in ALS TDI's ability to discover and develop treatments for veterans and all those facing ALS," said Carol Hamilton, director of government affairs for ALS TDI.

Through a multi-year contract with the DOD, ALS TDI will use the funding to advance promising therapies for ALS through its rigorous preclinical screen model.  The preclinical drug discovery and development program at ALS TDI is made up of several stages, including both in vitro and in vivo screening platforms.  This funding will have a direct impact on the Institute's ability to identify, validate and advance several, potential therapeutics toward the clinic.  Currently, the Institute has 30 projects in its active drug development pipeline, including small molecules, gene therapeutic and biologics. The Institute provides updates on its research efforts directly to the ALS community through a variety of mechanisms, including a quarterly research webcast, the next of which will be held on January 14, 2010.

"This grant is designed to move with the same sense of urgency felt by those living with ALS today, and their families.  This direct appropriation to ALS TDI will cut down on the time it takes to get money into the lab by avoiding many of the traditional bureaucratic obstacles, all the while ensuring strict oversight of how this money is spent.  It is these types of investments that will ultimately get the job done for our veterans and all others facing ALS today.  This is about turning hope into work, and we are grateful for the opportunity to follow-through on that charge," continued Dr. Perrin.
