In December, Dr. Danielle Kerkovich, BBDF Principal Scientist, attended NCL-Stiftung Congress in Hamburg, Germany. The focus of the congress was iPS-derived cellular systems as translational models for NCL. Thirty scientists from around the globe came together to discuss the newest findings in Batten research. At the meeting, Dr. Kerkovich presented on BBDF’s partnership with the New York Stem Cell Foundation and how it will aid researchers. In conjunction with the congress, Dr. Marco Sardiello, BBDF-funded researcher at Texas Children’s Hospital, received the 5th NCL Research Prize. To learn more about the meeting, click here.
