DBS

Description:
University of Florida doctors perform a deep brain stimulation procedure. DBS was approved by the Food and Drug Administration for patient use in 2002. It involves mapping the brain and strategically implanting small electrodes. Eventually, with additional operations, the electrodes are connected to a small, battery-powered unit implanted in the patient’s shoulder area that provides electrical stimulation. The stimulation alters brain activity without destroying brain tissue, thereby combating symptoms of disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. (Photo by sarah Kiewel/University of Florida)

Barry Byrne, M.D.

Description:
Dr. Barry Byrne, director of the Powell Gene Therapy Center at the University of Florida, led a research team that discovered a previously unknown “brain” connection in what has always been thought of as a “muscle” disease. The finding may lead to an effective treatment for Pompe disease, a genetic disorder that claims the lives of most children who have it before they reach age 2. (Photo by Sarah Kiewel)

Description:
University of Florida scientists, including David Borchelt and Mercedes Prudencio, have discovered why a paralyzing brain disorder speeds along more rapidly in some patients than others — a finding that may finally give researchers an entry point toward an effective treatment for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, often referred to as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease.
