Robison Published with ALS Case Study
Doctoral student Raele Robison has long been involved in research with individuals who have amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). She worked on this publication with a team including neurologist and collaborator Dr. Jim Wymer as well as NSSR pillars Dr. Lauren Tabor and Dr. Emily Plowman. This study highlights the gains in maximum inspiratory and expiratory pressure generation in one patient with a specific type of ALS. We want to congratulate Raele on her authorship of this paper and thank the team of researchers who assisted, as well as the amazing patients who are an integral part of our laboratory’s work in seeking means of functional improvement in the face of this diagnosis.
We hope that all will appreciate the immense commitment that is encapsulated by these five pages of data and interpretations. The NSSR and Swallowing Systems Core more broadly remain committed to producing high-quality publications such as this. Thank you also to the ALS Association for funding this type of work!
