Stem Cell Implications for ALS Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
At Johns Hopkins, researchers and doctors are working together to explore the impact of stem technology on ALS. The Robert Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins has helped uncover new genes for familial ALS, researched nerve repair, worked actively on genetic risk factors, developed a variety of animal models for testing therapies, explored ALS biology, advanced stem cell therapy, and researched ways to counter muscle atrophy.
