He and colleagues developed a gene therapy treatment for GM1 gangliosidosis that is in clinical trials at the National Institutes of Health. Porter Heatherly, the son of Auburn graduates Sara and Michael Heatherly, was the first known case of GM1 in Alabama and died in 2016 at age 4. Pictured in a 2014 photo are, front from left, Sara Heatherly, Porter Heatherly, Dr. Martin; second row from left, Michael Heatherly and Dr. Henry Baker, director emeritus of Auburn’s Scott-Ritchey Research Center.
