Morgellons disease, a little-known and often discounted illness, lacks the solid scientific data needed to point to a definitive cause.
Randy S. Wymore, Ph.D., assistant professor of pharmacology and physiology has taken on the research challenge in his academic research.

In coordinating research efforts, he sees a research challenge and a chance to help.
“I am doing this partly from scientific curiosity, but also with real empathy toward sufferers.”
