Board of Governors



The Packard Center is supported by a Board of Governors, a group of respected volunteers and philanthropists who are committed to the Packard Center’s fight against ALS. In addition to addressing the Center’s ongoing need to raise funds for ALS research, board members advise on strategies that will further advance the organization’s mission.

Our Experts

Johns Hopkins University
Neurologist Charlotte Sumner has a long history of studying neuromuscular disorders. In particular, she has focused her attention on caring for patients with inherited motor neuron and peripheral nerve disorders such as spinal muscular atrophy and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. Her work on the molecular pathogenesis of spinal muscular atrophy and the development of therapeutics may provide important clues for those with ALS.
