Learn About Spinal Muscular Atrophy
You’ve probably heard of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), an inherited disease characterized by weakening and atrophy of the muscles. However, you may not be familiar with the underlying cause of SMA, ongoing SMA research, or current therapies for SMA. That is why the people of the DNA Learning Center at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory invite you to Learn About Spinal Muscular Atrophy through their website of the same name. The homepage of this beautifully designed site provides a clear overview of the site’s contents, succinctly describing each of the five sections of the site: What is SMA, SMA Science, SMA Therapies, Antisense Therapy for SMA, and Living with SMA. Briefly, the site’s contents include educational videos and animations, as well as interviews with doctors, patients, and Nobel Laureates.
