This breakthrough has been more than 15 years in the making. What has been canada's role in this? >> Canadian investigators tend to be quiet about what we have done. But canada has really played a lead role in als research, particularly these types of cellular changes that can occur in these groups of cells.

Our work builds around those of others. Canada has been a leader in the world for this kind of research. >> You spoke about making this your life's work. What does this breakthrough mean to you as a scientist? >> As a scientist and as a clinician, it means I will sit down with my patients. We are working on this. We are trying to understand it. We think we know the direction we are going in. I think we can now see the horizon. I think we know where we are headed more now. It may not help the person who has got it today. But it will help those coming down the path. >> Lindsey: somebody watching right now, could this help me. Is this still a couple of years away? >> It still is. With a lot of hurdles in front of us. I have been around long enough to see these kinds of models. This is the best series of results I have seen. You can still stumble on a hurdle. It may not work later on.
