EURORDIS is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2019 Black Pearl Awards. There were hundreds of nominations for the 2019 Awards from over 30 different countries around the world. Nominations were submitted by the general public, shortlisted by an ad-hoc nominations committee and final recipients were selected by the EURORDIS Board of Directors.
One of the recipients we would like to congratulate is Beglian Prof. Philip Van Damme from the University Hospital Leuven (Belgium), who was awarded for his exceptional achievements in the field of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) research as well as his outstanding support and care for ALS patients through his collaborative work with the patient organisation ALS Liga Belgium.
TIckets for the event can be purchased on their website.
