Research Making ALS Less of a Mystery
Faculty member in Neuroscience, Dr. Jonathan D. Glass, is featured in a CBS News video about ALS research. New research suggests that in ALS patients, these supporting cells become killers, poisoning the motor neurons. Animal studies have found stem cells can help heal the toxic supporting cells. "What the stem cells will do is create a nutritious environment for those motor neurons that are sick," said Dr. Glass. Click here to view the video on CBSNews.com.
