Actor Michael J. Fox visited the lab today and spoke to researchers responsible for developing a way to trick embryonic stem cells into becoming spinal motor neurons; a development that may one day help victims of spinal cord injuries.

Fox, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, a degenerative nerve disorder, is a vocal advocate for increased stem cell research.
