Screening

We need multiple breakthroughs to achieve a cure for Wolfram syndrome. Based on my experience, “screening” often leads to a breakthrough. What do I mean by “screening”?

Screening is a strategy used in medical research to identify unexpected drug targets, drugs, or biomarkers. We design a screening strategy, and then conduct screening. This strategy costs money and time, and is risky. However, I feel that we should keep on conducting screening to develop novel treatment options for Wolfram syndrome.

Thank you again for your continued support this year. I am thinking of you.

Take care,
