    Ice Bucket Challenge funds help scientists discover gene responsible for ALS

    People thought it was silly two summers ago, but the Ice Bucket Challenge Internet sensation actually gathered enough funds to make an important breakthrough in ALS research.

    The University of Massachusetts Medical School's Project MinE recently discovered the gene that is responsible for ALS. Project MinE scientists were able to research this gene with help from the ALS Association, which donated $1 million from the Ice Bucket Challenge.

    The identified gene is NEK1, which its variants could provide clues to understanding and potentially treating familial and sporadic ALS.

    "The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge enabled us to secure funding from new sources in new parts of the world," Bernard Muller, founder of Project MinE and ALS patient, said in a statement. "This transatlantic collaboration supports our global gene hunt to identify the genetic drivers of ALS."

    Glad to see that something good came out of the Ice Bucket Challenge.

    ALS is really sad but there are people taking advantage of people's sympathy to scam a couple bucks

    The issue is there probably have been many smaller ones we don't know about. Simply because they didn't get exposure. ALS got a lot from massive companies and corporations.
    nice.

    It wasn't extremely stupid.

    The ice bucket was to simulate a person who suffers from ALS to allow you too realise what they suffer through.

    Yes I did read that part, but it wasn't extremely stupid. Even if the act seems like it was it wouldn't be seeing as it was used in this case.

    Like I said, there needs to be more charities alike this one, so we can understand more and fund more to medical centers to get more knowledge about stuff, and what can be solved before it has been developed.
