Heart Research UK supports King’s College London project to eliminate 'zombie cells'
The NDC is a multi-institutional initiative launched to better understand the biology of neurodegenerative diseases and translate that knowledge into effective therapeutics interventions. Established in 2012 by an inaugural $25 million gift from the Robert A. and Renee E. Belfer Family Foundation, the NDC brings researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai together with drug discovery and development experts from MD Anderson's Therapeutics Discovery division.
The Therapeutics Discovery division is a drug discovery and development engine created within MD Anderson to bring impactful new therapies to patients quickly, safely and effectively. The team works closely with MD Anderson clinicians and researchers to develop novel small molecules, biologics and cell-based therapies, driven by insight from patients.
"Within Therapeutics Discovery, we are motivated to bring new therapies to the patients who need them," said Ray. "Collaborations such as this are critical in helping us to realize our mission, and we look forward to working toward future benefit for patients with Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases."
