URGENT: The COVID-19 epidemic is severely impacting the progress of ALS research at the ALS Therapy Development Institute. If you are able to give, will you please provide an immediate gift to fund our lab?
Meet the scientists working to end ALS at the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI).
We Work with the Best
Dr. Theo Hatzipetros
Meet Theo
Dr. Theo Hatzipetros is our Director of Pharmacology and resident crossword clue expert.
While in the lab he oversees the execution of multiple studies of experimental drugs in ALS. When outside of the lab, he helps his coworkers get the hardest answers to the lunchtime crossword and spends time with his two young kids.
For over 17 years, Ken Thompson, Director of Lab Operations, and Fernando Vieira, now the Chief Scientific Officer, have been working at the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI) with one common goal: to end ALS. Here they talk about their day-to-day at ALS TDI, how life and work has changed since they started on their mission, and what drives them to keep working hard every single day.
