The mission of the Blazeman Foundation for ALS is:
1) To raise awareness about ALS by leveraging the energy, commitment and compassion of the multi-sport community and 2) To raise necessary funds to be directed into cutting-edge scientific research to find treatments and an eventual cure for ALS…“So Others May Live®“.
The Robert Packard Center for ALS Research has been on forefront of ALS research for the past fifteen years. Their approach to research is one where we facilitate intense scientific collaboration across institutional and administrative boundaries. Their aim is to provide innovative, promising, focused projects with researchers who understand that collaboration is a powerful catalyst in ending the disease.
Trials & Tissue Donation
With no effective treatments currently available to slow or stop the disease, many people living with ALS participate in clinical trials. The Institute provides comprehensive and unbiased information about clinical trials in ALS taking place worldwide. Browse the latest updates or search by zip code to find clinical trials near you.
Basic Trial Research NEALS
provides up-to-date information for finding both federally and privately funded clinical studies focusing on ALS and motor neuron diseases. You can locate both interventional trials, which examine if treatments are effective and safe under controlled environments, and observation trials, which examine people in more natural environments.
