The money raised through our activities are given to teams of Dr. Guy A. Rouleau. We contribute financially to their research in order to find a cure against spastic paraplegia (GSP4).
In the event that Dr Rouleau’s research project will not be completed, the organization will reassign donations to other researchers and/or organizations that work towards the same goal as us, which is finding a treatment for spastic paraplegia (SPG 4).
Dr. Guy A. Rouleau
Dr. Guy A. Rouleau is a professor at the Faculty of medicine at McGill University. In addition to his research laboratory, he is in charge of the Neurological Institute and Hospital in Montreal as well as the Department of neurology and neurosurgery at McGill. He also leads a pan-Canadian consortium dedicated to spastic paraplegia research, with the aim of finding effective treatments.
Among Dr. Rouleau’s greatest achievements, important breakthroughs were made by the discovery of more than 20 disease genes associated with neurological disorders. For 25 years, he has worked with research teams on projects that are primarily associated with neurodegenerative disorders.
Spastic paraplegia is one of the main topics of research of Dr. Rouleau. After explaining the genetic basis of the disease, his work now aims at testing the effectiveness of certain molecules in humans. Thanks to your donations, the discovery of a treatment to slow down the progression of the symptoms of spastic paraplegia, or even to stop its evolution is more tangible than ever.
