How regenerative medicine is advancing ALS research

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

May is ALS Awareness Month, a time to reflect on the role of regenerative medicine research in advancing understanding and treatment of  amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig’s disease. This neurodegenerative disorder causes nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to die, blocking signals to the muscles. That results in paralysis that robs […]

Meet Peter Grahn, Ph.D. — “I’ve never heard no”

By Advancing the Science contributor Advancing the Science contributor (@advancingthescience)

In 2010 Peter Grahn, Ph.D., attended an annual research symposium in Minneapolis hosted by the Morton Cure Paralysis Fund. Among the leading spinal cord injury researchers speaking was Mayo Clinic neurologist Anthony Windebank, M.D., the Judith and Jean Pape Adams Charitable Foundation Professor in Neuroscience, who discussed his laboratory’s research. Dr. Grahn, then a college […]
