About This Project

Prions - infectious proteins - cause fatal, untreatable neurodegenerative diseases. A promising new compound looks like it may be able to delay onset. Will it work against genetic forms of the disease?

Update: we have now raised funding to study this compound in three models of prion disease including a model of Sonia's own mutation, fatal familial insomnia. On our last day we are now fundraising to support our many other projects, described below.
Blast off!
