Team Alejandro

Driving Force

I always appreciate supports from my colleagues at Washington University, Dr. Barrett’s team in England, my collaborators in Europe, Japan, and South America.

So what does keep me going? OUR PATIENTS. I think about them every single day. They are supporting my team’s efforts, and the driving force for developing novel treatments for Wolfram syndrome.

TEAM ALEJANDRO, led by Alejandro who has Wolfram syndrome, will participate in this year’s Oakland Running Festival on Sunday, March 22 in their 5th Annual Run to Beat Wolfram Syndrome. Ale is a wonderful boy, a great artist, and my friend. Please support them!

Thank you for your continued support, encouragement, and faith in me.

Take care,

Fumi Urano
