Marianne Bal, Board Member
Marianne comes from Vienna, Austria, and works at Novartis, a large pharmaceutical company, in the Supply Chain Organization.
She is married to Sander and they have two children: Selina and Valentin. Valentin was born in June 2013 and diagnosed in December 2015 with PMD.
Ever since Marianne is constantly in touch with colleagues from various departments and researchers around the world to find a cure or a treatment and build a strong case to be heard at pharmaceutical companies. Furthermore, she wants to ensure that Europe (ELA – European Leukodystrophies Association) and USA (PMD Foundation) work closely together to achieve our common global goal to cure PMD.
