Gulf Ward vets and other sufferers of neurological diseases seek treatement at NSU's new Neuro-Immune Institute

A South Florida university has opened what's being billed as a one-of-a-kind neuroscience institute dedicated to cracking some of the medical world's most mysterious diseases.
Nova Southeastern University officials say their new Institute for Neuro Immune Medicine in Davie is the first in the country to not only treat patients with such conditions as chronic fatigue syndrome, Gulf War illness, Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis — but also to research the ailments' causes and possible treatments, all under one roof.
"The concept is to act as a think tank, with patients and scientists in one place," said institute director Dr. Nancy Klimas, a leading clinician in neuro-immune disorders. "It sounds boring, but boy, is it liberating."
