University and ALS Malta to carry out research on rare neurological disease

Research is going to be carried out on the rare motor neurone disease ALS, with the support of ALS Malta.

The research will take place with the collaboration of the department of Research and Development, RIDT, within the University of Malta. This research, which will be led by Dr Reuben Cauchi, will involve the taking of blood samples from people who have ALS in Malta, so that studies can also be made in connection with Maltese genetics.

The funds for this research were collected by ALS Malta, which was set up by Bjorn Formosa after he was diagnosed with this disease last year.
