In this webinar, Dr. Richard Bedlack, Duke ALS Clinic, will provide new information on six "outside the box" projects he is leading: ALSUntangled, ALS Reversals, ALS-CRLI, and upcoming trials with a spice, a banned substance and a filter.
In partnership with The ALS Association, NEALS offers live webinars for people with ALS, caregivers and the broader ALS community. Topics include updates on clinical trials, best practices for clinical care, and current research efforts in ALS causes and treatments. Our webinars also offer participants the opportunity to ask questions directly of the experts running clinical trials and conducting research activities.
Research experiments in ALS and other Neurodegenerative diseases are highly dependent on the study of human nervous system tissues. Brain, spinal cord and other tissues are used for diagnosis as well as for discovery of disease mechanisms that can lead to disease modeling and therapy development. In this webinar, Dr. Glass (Emory University) will discuss the basics of Neuropathology as it relates to ALS, including demonstrations of pathological features that have led to major investigations focused on understanding the underpinnings of ALS and the search for a cure.
