ALS is not an
incurable disease
It is an
underfunded one
ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) is a disease of the nerve cells in
the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement.
We are the world's
foremost drug discovery lab
focused solely on ALS.

Who We Are

Our scientists discover and develop potential treatments for ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's disease). Led by drug development experts and people with ALS, we are 100% focused on finding effective treatments to slow and stop this disease.
Who We Are

What We're Doing

Our innovative and cutting-edge approaches have led to the identification of AT-1501, a promising treatment for ALS. We also pioneered the first ALS Precision Medicine Program to discover more potential treatments faster by working with people with ALS.
What We Do

Why We Need Your Help

As a nonprofit biotech, we operate without regard to profit motive or politics. Our research is funded by a global network of supporters unified to end ALS. We're getting closer, but we need your help.
