Dan Doctoroff, David Rubenstein, and Bloomberg Philanthropies unveil Target ALS
Date:2/7/2013

e of the new consortium is the Target ALS Core Facilities, which will provide ALS investigators with access to key technologies that are too complex or costly to set up in each individual laboratory.

"With fresh resources and determined collaboration, we can make steady progress toward a cure for this devastating disease," said Mr. Rubenstein. "Dan, Mike, and I hope these resources will serve as a unifying catalyst for the great work that is being done around the world to cure and prevent ALS."

"Collaboration is essential to build on the real progress that's being made in the field of ALS research," said Michael R. Bloomberg, philanthropist and Mayor of New York City. "I'm proud to join Dan and David to launch this innovative new project and bring together the scientific, academic, healthcare, and business communities to stop this horrible disease once and for all."

Scientific director Christopher E. Henderson, PhD, and executive director Manish Raisinghani, MD, PhD, will jointly manage the program. Dr. Henderson is the Gurewitsch/Vidda Professor of Rehabilitation and Regenerative Medicine and co-director of the Motor Neuron Center and the Project A.L.S./Jenifer Estess Laboratory for Stem Cell Research at Columbia University Medical Center. The project will also benefit from the vision of special consultant Zach Hall, PhD, who is a former director of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and was the first president of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine.

"Target ALS will generate a pipeline of candidate therapeutic targets that will provide a common language for Target ALS and pharma and biotech companies, with whom we have initiated a dialogue to define their needs and expectations," said Dr. Henderson.

"By coordinating and supporting the work of leading ALS scientists and engaging pharma and biotech, Target ALS provides a new way of organizing science that will hasten the developmen
