We are excited to announce funding for nine new ALS research projects! The ALS Association awarded more than $1.3M to projects across the country, furthering investigation into the cause, treatments and cure for ALS. Projects include research on the C9orf72 gene, which has been identified as the most common cause of familial ALS. The research awards include ALS Association-Initiated Grants, Investigator-Initiated Biomarker Grants, and the Milton Safenowitz Postdoctoral Fellowships.
