June 26th 2019:  Dr. Mueller of the University of Massachusetts Medical School attended NF2 BioSolutions’s NF2 Gene Therapy 16-chris-mueller.jpgconsortium in Boston on March 29th. Being moved by the impact of NF2, Dr. Mueller decided to start a gene therapy pilot study to determine if his lab’s gene therapy platform could be a good candidate for tackling the NF2 mutation. The advantage of his platform is its ability to silence the mutated gene and then add a healthy one. Dr. Mueller, assisted by Dr. Karin Meijboom, will be financing the development of the gene therapy NF2 vector for the pilot. Once manufactured, it will be tested on NF2 in order to determine efficiency. NF2 BioSolutions will facilitate the collaboration between the NF2 experts and Dr. Mueller’s lab.

This is just the beginning, there is much more to come!!! We need your continuing support as we shine the spotlight on NF2. Our goal is to collaborate with several leading gene therapy labs and share findings as we go to increase our chances of finding a long term solution for NF2.

Take a look at the impressive Mueller lab (the site is not yet updated with his new NF2 focus).

NF2 BioSolutions (NBS) board member John Manth had a busy weekend educating the NF2 community on NBS and our accomplishments. On Saturday John presented at the NF Midwest Symposium in Chicago then flew to NY City where he presented on Sunday at the NF Patient Forum at NYU Langone. John’s presentation shared information on our mission/vision, strategy, board, advisors, ambassadors, NF2 Gene Therapy consortium as well as explaining the three researchers that NBS is supporting. The NF2 patients and families who attended these two events where very excited and appreciative of the work that NBS is doing.
Thank you John for representing NBS and taking so many initiatives.

My name is Frederik Suter, one more year and then my life will be 17 years without and 17 years with nf2. I don't think I have to tell you which part of the two I would choose if I could. NF2 is an asshole. I've been through a lot already, wrote an autobiography about it five years ago and since then NF2 has kept trying to pull me down. There are so many metaphors in my head which put the ongoing battle between me and NF2 into pictures, for example I sometimes imagine a swamp of quicksand where I am trapped and slowly being swallowed until only my head (which still works contrary to my body) is popping out. Or like a tug-of-war where I'm slowly being pulled to the mark where I've lost although I'm pulling back with full strength.
Funnily enough the more NF2 throws at me the stronger I seem to get. So I can't really lose, can I? Well, let's say I won't give up without a fight. Sure, some day I will have to face the showdown, but then I will be the one who decides when it's over. I already made some vows with myself that when nf2 causes me this or that restriction in addition to the many I already have, then I'll call it a day. However, until then I will keep fighting and with hope, humour and humility look into the future, indeed this year some of my restrictions have been improved and I have regained some life quality back and at the moment I am overjoyed and positive. Next year maybe I'll try to get my ABI repositioned which never worked unfortunately. But third time lucky, eh?! And then there's NF2 BioSolutions(NBS) which surely give some hope, even though nf2 has caused me to become very sceptical towards research about it throughout the years. I'm very grateful that there are new initiatives happening and NBS indeed seems to be a fresh and promising approach.

My book has been translated into English and is available to order here:

From each sold copy $5 (5 €, £4) goes to NF2 BioSolutions.

BAY AREA, CALIFORNIA: Big thanks to the Thoms family for the Halloween Bash 2019 fundraiser and to all the volunteers and the donors. More than $55,000 was donated to NF2 BioSolutions for boosting NF2 novel therapy research, as those who donated and came out to support the event were extremely generous

The highlight of the event was English Beat with Dave Wakeling, who rocked the house with their infectious and very danceable ska music - a definite throwback to the 80’s. After a bidding war for an 8-hour limousine ride went for $4400, the limousine company (Bauers) stepped up and offered the same deal to the second bidders, raising $8600.

Thank you to all the 2019 SPONSORS, who are;
*Varsity Painting
*A One Construction

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM: The presentation by NF2 BioSolutions (NBS) at the 3rd Annual Gene Therapy for Rare Disorders Europe was well-received by the biotech community, says NBS vice-president Gilles Atlan.
Speaking on Thursday (Oct 17) after the end of the conference, Gilles said the following;
"There is a lot of interest in the presentation about the progress of the NF2 labs we re supporting. We understand that it is important to bring in the support of biotech companies at an early stage to support the pre-clinical lab work. All in, we are continuing to put NF2 on the map!"

The conference ran from Oct 15 - Oct 17 and NBS was represented by Gilles, treasurer Deian Owen and NBS United Kingdom team leader Clare Goddard.
