Strategic Initiatives Drive Research Progress


The outpouring of support from the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has allowed the ALS Association to champion numerous new strategic initiatives in order to build understanding of the disease, target new therapies, expedite clinical trials and make RNA and DNA sequencing data available for the entire ALS research community. These collaborative initiatives have already lead us closer to ALS treatments and a cure. Central to all new collaborations is the people living with ALS.

Strategic Initiatives:

Neuro Collaborative

Project MinE

Genomic Translation for ALS Care (GTAC)

New York Genome Center - Center for Genomics of Neurodegenerative Diseases (NYGC CGND)

CReATe Consortium


ALS Accelerated Therapeutics (ALS ACT)

Answer ALS
