Dear UCSB Students, I am studying about the Spina Bifida Disease. in science class and I was wondering: Have the students at UCSB made any progress of researching if there are any known antidotes to this disease? Another question is if you students know any unusual side affects of this diseise. Tanner Wolf

Answer 1:

My guess overall is no though. If a UCSB student did find a cure, we would DEFINITELY have heard about it. And if a student is currently following a promising lead, I don't think they'd want to publicize it at this point. These kinds of questions are hard because it is great that they are curious about what's being done at UCSB, but no one person will know what everybody's doing!Mark, Life Science
