The Project ALS Approach
Twenty years ago, Project ALS changed the way scientists and doctors conducted ALS research. As a result, we are closer to the first effective treatments for ALS.
The Project ALS business model—now widely adopted--requires that leading ALS researchers work together, share data openly, and meet shared deadlines. Project ALS works collaboratively with its scientists to identify the most promising ALS research and, along with its Research Advisory Board (RAB), streamlines the research process with effective strategies. Project ALS assesses progress through regular meetings and reviews by the RAB.
Project ALS engages in the ongoing recruitment of innovators, not only from neuroscience, but diverse disciplines including stem cell biology, mathematics, computation statistics, chemistry, bioimaging, and industry, to contribute to the growing body of knowledge of what goes wrong in ALS—and how we will fix it. Project ALS provides research funding on a rolling basis, ever poised to support innovation.
