      [URL=”″%5DProject A.L.S. opens the first privately-funded lab to focus exclusively on the study of stem cells to treat ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and related motor neuron diseases[/URL]

      “The creation of a state-of-the-art laboratory where the latest ideas in stem cell biology can be explored on human stem cell derived motor neurons, without hindrance or constraint, is a very remarkable achievement,” said Thomas M. Jessell, Ph.D. In only seven years, the Project A.L.S. stem cell consortium has achieved significant scientific breakthroughs, such as showing embryonic-stem-cell-derived motor neurons could establish appropriate connections with target muscle (Journal Neuroscience, 2004 Sep 8; Journal Neuroscience, 2006 Mar 22).
