As part of the partnership with McGill University, an important meeting was held on September 19 in Montreal with representatives of the Zurich Neuroscience Centre. This first meeting was to promote the ARSACS project to researchers and to identify potential collaborators to the project.

Furthermore, the meeting provided a great opportunity to discuss the latest technological tools currently available or under development by the researchers of the Neuroscience Centre in order to improve the quality of llife of the individuals with ARSACS. Mr. Jean Groleau and Mrs Sonai Gobeil, founders of the Ataxia Charlevoix-Saguenay Foundation, particpated at the meeting.

We will keep you informed of any development on this subject.
