"To get a treatment to patients today takes more than just good science. It requires real partnerships between patients, pharma, biotech, academia, non-profits, for-profits, funders, investors, governments and others. Anyone with a stake in moving potential treatments forward for ALS and related neurodegenerative disorders should attend this important meeting," says Steve Perrin, Ph.D., CEO and CSO of ALS TDI.
The Institute will also announce this year's Leadership Award recipients during the Summit. Each year, ALS TDI recognizes active members within the ALS community who have been nominated by their peers for driving awareness of ALS and fundraising for research into effective treatments for the disease. This year's recipients include Andy Rubenstein of Cranbury, NJ; Jenny Dwyer of Kenmore, WA; Roger Petrone Jr. of Stamford, CT and Rick Cochran of Greenwich, CT; and Kevin Swan of Lakewood Ranch, FL. More information about the awards can be found online at www.als.net/summit/awards.
The ninth annual Leadership Summit begins at 9:00 a.m. and is free and open to the public. Lunch is provided, and there will be a cocktail and networking reception at the close. To learn
