Researcher Awarded ALS Association Grant

Following the drug screening effort for new therapies against ALS, Andrea Vincent, Ph.D., obtained a grant from the ALS Association to study the protective drug effects. The grant is for one year and is intended to examine how inflammation influences the survival of the motor neurons affected in ALS. Dr. Vincent hopes to use this one-year period to generate new theories about how ALS progresses and develop her research program in this area.
