Dr. Mitchell tells Georgia Tech President Bud Peterson the following about her lab's current ALS research: "We are like ALS weather forecasters.  That is, we make computer models to assess possible ALS causes and to develop promising treatment paradigms. The ALS Association Ice Bucket Challenge spreads awareness about Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and helps to fund pivotal research towards a cure."
