SPOTLIGHT ON


Professor Mimoun Azzouz –––


Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is one of the most common genetic causes of death in childhood. The disease is currently incurable.


Professor Mimoun Azzouz’s research team has demonstrated significant


increase in survival in experimental models of SMA.


This key proof-of-principle


experiment has prompted Professor Azzouz and his team to progress this strategy towards obtaining a biologic license application to initiate a phase I clinical trial in SMA patients with


funding from the MRC and European Research Council.
