The Cure Girls are proud to announce that they have donated €10000 to Spinal Research, the UK’s leading charity funding medical research around the world to develop effective treatments for paralysis caused by spinal cord injury.
After our meeting in London of August 2017 with Alison Wadley (Marketing and Communications Manager at Spinal Research), Prof. Elizabeth Bradbury (Professor of Regenerative Medicine & Neuroplasticity) and her team at King’s College London, the Cure Girls were positively impressed by both the work of Spinal Research and Prof. Elizabeth Bradbury, and decided to contribute even more. The Italian charity ‘Marina Romoli Onlus Association’ founded by the Cure Girl Marina Romoli decided to make a donation of €10 000 to Spinal Research.
This donation will go towards Spinal Research’s CHASE-IT project to develop an effective therapy for spinal cord injury using the neuroplasticity enhancing properties of the bacterial enzyme chondroitinase.
We wish the best of luck to all the researchers involved in the project and hope this effort will bring us an effective therapy for chronic spinal cord injury.
