Packard Center News
Packard Center founder and director Jeff Rothstein appeared on WYPR to discuss the Answer ALS research program.

Packard Center founder and director Jeff Rothstein, along with Answer ALS Board Members, Ed Rapp and Peter Warlick, appeared on WYPR's (Baltimore's NPR station) On the Record this morning.

From the website:  ALS is incurable -- it’s a progressive attack on nerve cells that control voluntary movements--like breathing. We meet two men diagnosed with ALS: Ed Rapp, and Peter Warlick, who are raising awareness and millions of dollars for Answer ALS an unorthodox way to crowdsource research.  And we talk to the research director, Dr. Jeffrey Rothstein, about how the Answer ALS approach mimics research on cancer, by applying stem cell technology.
