The Angel Fund’s support of ALS research at the Day Lab at UMass Medical Center in Worcester, under the direction of Dr. Robert H. Brown, Jr. has helped fund a critical ALS breakthrough. The gene EphA4 is the center of the research that was discovered by a Belgium doctor, Dr Brown and other researchers. Dr Brown stated that suppressing EphA4 may be a new way to treat ALS.
