Beyond Batten Disease Foundation is spearheading a unique, cohesive strategy that incorporates independent scientific resources and collaborations with related funding organizations to drive research into Batten Disease.

Watch the following video to see how Beyond Batten Disease Foundation is working with academia, the pharmaceutical industry, and government agencies to cross the “Valley of Death” between initial scientific discoveries and meaningful progress toward treatments and cures.

On November 19-20, 2014, Beyond Batten Disease Foundation (BBDF), together with theNew York Academy of Sciences (NYAS), hosted a Drug Targeting the Lysosome Workshop at the New York Academy of Sciences Conference Center at 7 World Trade Center.

This unique think-tank conference featured academic and pharmaceutical researchers who share an interest in designing safe and effective therapies that will target lysosome activity to treat a wide spectrum of human diseases including lysosomal storage diseases like juvenile Batten disease, adult neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer.
