To the ALS Community,
As I reflect on all that we have accomplished in 2021, I want to thank you for your continued support. 

This past fall, I stated that as the ALS Drug Discovery Engine, our goal moving forward is to advance an ALS treatment to human trials every two years. This is an incredibly ambitious goal, but as we close the year, I can tell you that I am more encouraged than I have ever been by the progress that we are making.

In 2022, my goal is not only to continue to discover and advance promising treatments but also to fulfill our commitment to the community by ensuring that we are communicating openly about this progress.
Thanks to your continued support and dedication, I am more optimistic than I have ever been that we can end ALS. My hope is that by keeping you informed, you too can share in this sense of optimism. 


Thank You and Happy New Year!
