ALD Life is sending £5,000 in funding support to esteemed ALD and AMN specialist and friend to ALD Life, Dr Florian Eichler. Dr Eichler is investigating the use of gene therapy to alleviate AMN symptoms. This funding will be used to develop measurement systems to determine balance improvements.


“…these funds will allow us to advance AAV-mediated gene delivery for Adrenomyeloneuropathy by defining the degree of balance problems gene delivery can correct. The support will help establish a collaboration between Massachusetts General Hospital and the vestibular lab at the Mass Eye and Ear Infirmary to address this.” – Quote from Dr Florian Eichler.
