Dystrophy Aid Found By Med School Girl

A Medical School student named Ann M. Michelson and a mouse named "Funny-foot" may have taken a giant step forward toward the cure for muscular dystrophy. Miss Michelson's research on "Funny-foot's" mutant genes resulted in a $50,000 grant for extensive exploration along the lines of heredity.

At present Miss Michelson is continuing her research with hopes of raising enough of the rodents to complete the work proposed by the Muscular Dystrophy Association of America. This will entail raising about 400 animals a month, a substantial increase over the eight or ten which are born each week.
