theGSF and FightSMA Award $100,000 Spinal Muscular Atrophy Research Grant

theGSF.org | December 15, 2011

The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation (theGSF) and FightSMA are excited to announce a $100,000 award to Dr. Monique A. Lorson and University of Missouri in support of Dr. Lorson’s research focused on developing a large animal model of Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA).

Currently, no large animal model of SMA exists and the goal of Dr. Lorson’s research is to develop the first ever pig based model of SMA to be used by the broad, global SMA research community and other research groups to allow them to more efficiently and effectively move promising research from the bench to bedside. In short, this is a very exciting program that has the potential to have a material, positive impact on the future of SMA research in almost every category (e.g. gene therapy, compounds, antisense oligonucleotides).
