Researching the Use of Stem Cells for ALS – Nathan Staff, M.D, Ph.D.

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

Nathan Staff, M.D, Ph.D., and his team are researching the potential of cell-based therapies to promote the healing response for patients with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS. A fatal neurodegenerative disease, ALS causes progressive paralysis and death in 2-5 years. Currently, no curative treatment exists for this devastating condition. While it is a rare disease, […]

The Case for Stem Cell Treatments for ALS

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

When nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord stop working normally there is a noticeable change in muscle movement and activity. Motor neurons work with the brain to control muscle movement such as gripping and walking. These activities become increasingly difficult with the onset of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou […]

From Hypothesis to Bedside

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

Medical research can be a challenging process, slowed by the complicated nature of translating research into treatment, but Mayo Clinic’s Nathan Staff, M.D., Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Neurology, has a plan to surmount these obstacles and streamline the research process. He and his colleagues detailed this plan in an issue of the journal Science Translational […]
