In this Facebook Live Chat, reporter Hal Foster — joined by two leading Friedreich’s ataxia researchers, Louise Corben with the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute in Australia, and David Lynch with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia — looked back at day three of IARC 2017 in Pisa, Italy, and toward what the future might hold.

IARC 2017 is the world’s largest scientific conference into ataxias.

“The first treatment is a couple of years down the road” yet, Lynch said. But the variety of work now underway “has got us ever closer to viable important therapies.”

Corben, noting that more than 10 people made the long trip from Australia to attend IARC 2017 — in comparison to one or two years ago — spoke of how research in Australia focuses particularly on “the here and now.”

Friedreich’s Ataxia News has a team of reporters, editors and social media specialists covering IARC, the International Ataxia Research Conference.
