2020 Million Dollar Bike Ride: Team NUBPL Foundation

What is NUBPL
It was discovered in 2010 that mutations in the NUBPL gene are a cause of Mitochondrial Complex 1 Deficiency. Iron-sulfur protein NUBPL, also known as nucleotide-binding protein like, is an iron-sulfur (Fe/S) protein that, in humans, is encoded by the NUBPL gene, located on chromosome 14q12.
Million Dollar Bike Ride - DOUBLE your donation
Research dollars are very difficult to come by for rare diseases like NUBPL. There are zero treatments and the disease is progressive. The Million Dollar Bike Ride is an incredible opportunity to raise desperately needed funding for NUBPL research for the discovery of a treatment breakthrough or cure. If we raise a minimum of $20,000, our efforts will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $30,000.

We cannot fund NUBPL research without your support. Click the Donate Now! button at the top left-hand side and share this link with your friends and family.
