The ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter’s 2015 ALS Care & Research Symposium was held on May 2, 2015 with special guest presenter/keynote speaker— Clive Svendsen, Ph.D. of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Dr. Svendsen, is a trailblazer in the field of modeling and treating neurodegenerative disorders such as ALS and Parkinson's Disease using a combination of stem cells and powerful growth factors. Despite recent advances in treatment and therapies, ALS is still fatal. There is no cure. No one diagnosed with ALS has survived.
