2016 Grant for ALS Research

THE ROBERT PACKARD CENTER FOR ALS RESEARCH AT JOHNS HOPKINS

The Kornfeld Foundation was instrumental in establishing the Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins Medical School in 2000. In 2002 the Center was renamed the Robert Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins. The Center is dedicated to finding a cure for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis a/k/a Lou Gehrig’s Disease) through aggressive and innovative research involving leading scientists and clinicians worldwide. By involving “cutting edge” investigators, the Center has created a model research program which allows for greater shared information and quicker response to scientific discoveries. With the completion of its initial five-year/$4 million grant, the Kornfeld Foundation continues to support the innovative work of the Packard Center.
