We look forward to bringing you promising news every month as we move closer to translating our 15 years of basic science research into meaningful therapies.
Last month, Dr. Edwin Kolodny — the physician who has nurtured our Foundation since Day 1 — and his wife, Dr. Roz Kolodny, were honored and celebrated for their community impact by Berkshire Hills Hadassah.
During the virtual event that attracted attendees from all around the globe, Dr. Ed Kolodny shared his inspiring life's work on two genetic diseases — Tay-Sachs disease and APBD — which impact the Jewish community. Dr. Roz Kolodny shared heartwarming stories about her decades-long relationship with Hadassah. The event also raised over $15,000 which will be used to advance APBD research at Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem, Israel.
There is more good news highlighted in this newsletter. Please read on.
To our doctors, our researchers, our patients, and our families, we are thankful to each and every one of you for your role in our work to find a cure for APBD.
Our hearts are filled with hope!
All best wishes,
Emil Weiss, Co-President
