Bjorn E. Oskarsson, M.D., studies adult motor neuron disease (MND) including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), primary lateral sclerosis (PLS), progressive muscular atrophy (PMA), and related diseases such as spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and inclusion body myopathy (IBM). He investigates the causes and ways to measure these diseases and explores new treatments.
Dr. Oskarsson's research projects aim to make quicker and more-accurate diagnoses, identify targets for drug therapy, attempt drug therapy to slow or halt disease progression, and help improve quality of life for patients with MND.
