In a rare public speech, Jan Cellucci said her late husband Paul, the former Massachusetts governor and U.S. ambassador to Canada, hoped his campaign to fund a cure for ALS wouldn't end with his death from the disease. UMass Medical School Chancellor Michael F. Collins said he pledged to Cellucci that the Champion Fund would grow, and continue to support the work of Cellucci's former doctor, Robert H. Brown Jr, DPhil, MD, chair and professor of of neurology at UMMS and one of the world's leading ALS researchers.More news and events around the system:
