  9. …and that’s a good thing… “It’s a great time to be a mouse with a neuromuscular disease!” John Porter, Ph.D. (NIH / NINDS)

  10. Challenges How to safely and effectively extend these successes to humans? Who is going to fill the void between biotechs funded by foundations & fed - and - big pharma?

  11. Smart partnership….

  12. Finding Treatments: Smart Partnership • Leveraging through MDA’s drug development program • Federal govt & other non-profits • Partnership with Pharma and Biotech companies • Venture capitalists

  13. Enhancing Research through Communication & Collaboration

  14. MDA Symposium Series - 2012 MDA Neuron Symposium Role of glia in motor neuron degeneration in ALS MDA Muscle Symposium Newborn screening for Duchenne muscular dystrophy MDA Translational Symposia Encouraging technology transfer from academia Gene therapy for neuromuscular disease (with AFM)

  15. Getting a head start…

  16. Clinics & Clinical Research Networks MDA Clinic MDA ALS Clinic Duchenne research network ALS research network

  17. Investment in Training Researchers…. Currently = 40 Trainees (~$7 million) Historically = 377 trainees (~ $48 million) • Basic researchers (DG) • Clinical researchers (CRTG)

  18. MVP: Program Review Zero trainees in translational projects!

  19. Academia Industry Bridge to Industry (B2I) • B2I postdoctoral fellowships • Training future NMD translational researchers

  20. Future Muscle Disease Researchers
