The Center of Hope
Support Our Work
The clinical care of people living with ALS is of primary importance to the team at the MDA/ALS Center of Hope. Still, the clinic provides an important setting for research towards understanding, treating and curing ALS. That is why the ALS Hope Foundation supports an extensive clinical research program at the Center of Hope. Without research, there would be no progress in our fight against ALS. Clinical Research is a broad term, encompassing clinical trials (studies on the effect of a medicine on the disease or its symptoms) and clinical research that examines other aspects of the illness, such as assistive technology or quality-of-life. Clinical research at the Center complements our basic research program, in the hope that promising therapeutics identified at the lab bench can be tested for efficacy in the clinic. We encourage you to participate in our research program to help us make progress to our goal—the cure of ALS. The links below take you to descriptions that outline the various research projects at the center. If you are interested or willing to participate in any of them, please let us know.
