Understanding the brain is among the science’s great frontier and key to developing cures for ALS which would open doors for many other untreated neurological diseases.
We have known about ALS for over 100 years now and yet there are no treatments! The pace of innovation is accelerating. We're seeing advances in so many areas at the same time - Genomics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, wearables as biomarkers etc. Technology is key to enabling innovation in rare diseases. We are confident that with today’s innovations in healthcare, data analytics, genome therapy and many more, we will find a cure.
