Race for a Cure

Christian Lorson, Associate Professor, Veterinary Medicine, UM Columbia

Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is the leading genetic cause of infantile death and the leading genetic killer of children under the age of two. As an associate professor in MU’s Department of Veterinary Pathobiology, Christian Lorson has dedicated his life’s research to the study of this devastating disease in hopes of someday developing therapies to replace the diseased gene with a ‘healthy” one.

The UMRB grant allowed us to establish ourselves in new areas. With this support, we were able to win two large NIH awards, which are now the foundation of our lab.
