Hope for muscle disease patients

ALS is a devastating disease that affects motor nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. When Phil Green got his diagnosis, he faced it head on. He's supporting ways to make a difference in the fight against the condition. That's why he's excited about a new research center, headquartered at UW Medicine South Lake Union. The Center for Translational Muscle Research will examine muscle health and disease in hopes of finding therapies for conditions like ALS and muscular dystrophy. Michael Regnier, professor of bioengineering, a jointly operated department of the University of Washington College of Engineering and the UW School of Medicine, will head the new center.
