The goal of this project is to develop small molecules that reverse the cellular phenotype of ARSACS into
a drug that would stop the progression of the disease and/or lead to clinical improvement. The project is
a multidisciplinary collaboration between Dr Bernard Brais’ (McGill Univ.) and Dr Michel Bouvier’s (IRIC,
Institute of Researcher in Immunology and Cancer, Univ. of Montreal) laboratories with the participation
of the High Throughput Screening (HTS) and Medicinal Chemistry core facilities at IRIC.
