Other Information

The ALS Therapy Development Institute’s Precision Medicine Program (PMP) is the most comprehensive and longest running translational research study in ALS. Our researchers partner with people living with ALS around the world to share and gather data on medical histories, family histories, genetics, biomarkers, and patient cell biology to better understand the disease. Our goals are to • Discovering new targeted treatments for ALS. • Making clinical trials faster and more efficient. • Empowering people with ALS by giving them access to their own data. Only by working in true partnership with people with ALS can we expand our comprehensive database and enhance our knowledge of this disease.
1) ALS diagnosis - possible, probable, suspected, definite 2) Access to the internet 3) the ability to consent 4) ability to communicate in English
Everyone with an ALS diagnosis can sign-up and provide their data to the PMP. All data collection is done online, no travel. Participants have access to a secure portal to enter their data and review it as well as PMP progress online. Those that meet additional criteria may be asked to participate in additional arms of the PMP.
