We are committed to making ALS livable for everyone, everywhere, until we can cure it. To make this vision a reality, we fund impactful research focused on:
Finding New Treatments and Cures
Through numerous grant programs and partnerships, we are working to stimulate drug discovery by not only increasing the number of clinical trials but also increasing clinical trial access and efficiency. In addition, we invest in the future of ALS research by encouraging young scientists to enter and, importantly, remain in the ALS field.
Optimizing Current Treatments and Care
Developing new treatment approaches takes time so it is important to focus on evaluating ways to improve quality of life for people currently living with ALS. This includes optimizing the use of telehealth and assistive technologies, collecting real world evidence and supporting families and caregivers.
Preventing ALS and
As we gain a greater understanding of the underlying factors that lead to the development of ALS, we uncover more opportunities to prevent the disease from occurring. It is also important to diagnose and treat the disease as early as possible, including leveraging the use of genetic testing and counseling.
Amplifying Our Impact
Collaboration plays a central role in achieving our mission. By partnering with others who have shared vision and values, we seek to increase the depth and breadth of the research we fund and its impact.
