Week of May 22

  • May 22 - Jun 7 NEW EXHIBIT AT DANA! Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS): the Science, the Search, and the Stories

    Location: Dana's Main Hallway

    §Dana’s new exhibit looks at what ALS is, the research that is being done at UVM, and the search for a cure. It also highlights ALS stories in the form of books and movies, as well as people whose lives have been affected. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that is 100% fatal. It affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord and causes motor neurons to degenerate and die off. When this happens, the brain is unable to relay signals to those muscles and control voluntary muscle movements. About 20,000 Americans can have this disease at any given time. Stop by the exhibit cases and learn more!§§§§§§§
