Prompt: You serve on a committee for a charitable foundation that will vote and decide how to fund grant
requests for research on specific diseases. This research could lead to a better understanding of disease
mechanisms or new therapies/interventions. The applications for the grants have been narrowed down to 3
choices. Out of these choices, you may only choose one to vote for:
1. Osteogenesis imperfecta
2. Duchenne muscular dystrophy
3. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Which option will you choose and try to convince others to vote for? There is no perfect choice available and all
three choices have strong grant applications.
Through this 2-part discussion with your classmates, you will state your choice, explain the disease, and why
you chose to vote this way using appropriate and sufficient evidence. Your explanation should include the
cause of the disease, impact on the anatomy and physiology of the body, demographics, symptoms, currently
available research/treatments, and prognosis.
