ST. LOUIS (AP) - Fair St. Louis moves to Forest Park this year, but organizers still expect big crowds for entertainment, fireworks and food.
 
Organizers of one of the nation's largest Fourth of July celebrations announced the entertainment lineup Tuesday. Fair St. Louis is temporarily moving away from the grounds of the Gateway Arch because of construction there as part of a major renovation of the grounds and the area around the Arch.
 
Musical performers will include Bonnie Raitt, The Band Perry, The Fray, Musiq Soulchild, Gavin Degraw, Matt Nathanson, Mary Lambert, Capitol Cities and The Neighborhood.
 
The fair is July 3-5.

SLU Researcher Earns Big Grant To Study MS

Wednesday, 09 April 2014 09:42 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A Saint Louis University researcher will use a $608,000 grant to study how the autoimmune process that causes multiple sclerosis might be stopped or slowed.
 
The grant announced Tuesday is from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and went to Dr. Daniel Hawiger.
 
 Multiple sclerosis is a chronic disease of the central nervous system. It occurs when some of the immune system's so-called "T-cells" mistake the nerve fiber coating called myelin as a foreign tissue to be destroyed.
 
Hawiger will seek to understand how immunological tolerance works and why it sometimes fails. The goal is to design better clinical treatments that selectively suppress immune-medicated damage to the nervous system for those with MS.
