Nancy and Buster Alvord Endowed Professorship in Multiple Sclerosis Research
The Nancy and Buster Alvord Endowed Professorship in Multiple Sclerosis was established by the proceeds of the 2003 Dinner of Champions. The dinner was organized by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Greater Washington Chapter, to honor Nancy D. Alvord and the late Ellsworth C. “Buster” Alvord, Jr., M.D., and to support a research scientist who specializes in multiple sclerosis.
Dr. Buster Alvord was a UW Medicine faculty member and a pioneer in the development and utilization of experimental allergic encephalomyelitis (EAE), an immunological model for the study of a possible cause of multiple sclerosis. Both of the Alvords have been closely associated with the University of Washington for many years.
