Pathology of callosal damage in ALS: An ex-vivo, 7T diffusion tensor MRI study.

Cardena et al., NeuroImage (2017) 15, 200-208.In a collaborative study between the National Institute of Health, the University of Maryland and theUniversity of Michigan, researchers used a 7 tesla (high intensity) MRI to image the donated brains fromdonors with ALS and compared the findings to those obtained from donors without ALS. Although themotor symptoms in ALS patients are caused by pathology in the motor regions of the brain and spinalcord, the nerve fibers connecting different regions…See More

" Thank you Deb...Without raising awareness and funding, ALS will not receive the research efforts necessary to find a meaningful treatment and cure, and ALS will continue to strike down every person who is diagnosed. To date there are no…"

Hsp70 Project Update from Wake Forest...Miles Lyon...Graduate Student and "Blazeman Research Warrior".

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Blais, My name is Miles Lyon and I am the student in Dr. Milligan’s lab who is working on the completion of the Hsp70 project. While I know Dr. Milligan does her best to update you with the progress of the project, she is currently being pulled in several directions as head of the neuroscience graduate program, principal investigator of her own lab, and mentor to her students, and even though she is managing that feat day in and day out I asked her if I could  email you myself…See More

Team Blazeman

Team Blazeman is a nationwide team of multisport athletes who compete for a cause larger than themselves. Members of Team Blazeman, known as Blazeman Warriors, help carry out the mission of The Blazeman Foundation for ALS by raising awareness about ALS. As they train and race, Blazeman Warriors raise awareness and commit to attainable fundraising objectives to support cutting-edge scientific research to find the causes and a cure for ALS.

Blazeman Warriors keep the spirit of Jon Blais alive. They show others, and discover themselves, that failure is not an option and to never give up. For that reason, Blazeman Warriors achieve success and fulfillment in their multi-sport endeavors that they never dreamed possible. Blazeman Warriors commemorate Jon’s 2005 Ironman finish by rolling across the finish line to the cheers of spectators, a gesture that has come to symbolize the War on ALS.
