On Monday, November 7, 2016, the Les Turner ALS Research and Patient Center at Northwestern Medicine will host the sixth annual Les Turner Symposium on ALS and NeuroRepair in Chicago. The Center is the result of a partnership between the Les Turner ALS Foundation and Northwestern University which has lasted over 35 years. The Foundation has provided support that has led to ground-breaking advances in ALS research from the laboratories of Teepu Siddique, MD, Professor of Neurology; Hande Ozdinler, PhD, Assistant Professor of Neurology and Evangelos Kiskinis, PhD, Assistant Professor of Neurology at the Feinberg School of Medicine.

This year’s symposium will include a research data blitz, presentations by Center clinicians and researchers and a keynote presentation by the acclaimed researcher Dr. Terry Heiman-Patterson, Professor and Vice-Chair of Neurology and Director of the MDA/ALS Center of Hope at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia. Dr. Heiman-Patterson is also the Co-Founder of the ALS Hope Foundation and the Co-Chair of NEALS.
