Paul Varisco, Team Gleason Executive Director,
Visits LSU Neuroscience Center

Paul Varisco, Executive Director of Team Gleason, visited the Neuroscience Center of Excellence,
Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, New Orleans. Team Gleason is a foundation
established by former New Orleans Saints player, Steve Gleason, to raise public awareness and
support for research and treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other neuromuscular
diseases. While here, Mr. Varisco met with the Director of the Neuroscience Center, Dr. Nicolas G. Bazan,
and visiting guest, Professor Dr. Pierluigi Nicotera, to discuss contemporary translational research on ALS.
