Last month, the AHCF was pleased to provide financial support for three people to attend the Second Symposium on ATP1A3 in Disease. The two AHC researchers we funded from the United States were; Dr. Kathryn Swoboda from the University of Utah and Dr. Al George from Vanderbilt University. The AHCF was also represented by President Lynn Egan.
