10th Call for Projects

The Thierry Latran Foundation was established in 2008 to a) finance basic, applied and clinical research with potential therapeutic benefit in sporadic ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) and b) to support academic and industrial scientific research efforts in Europe to cure this disease.

The Foundation has enabled to reach significant milestones in terms of understanding ALS disease mechanisms and developments. After having paved the way for such progress, the Foundation will, for this new Call, focus on on-going most promising therapeutic targets, to validate or invalidate them:
