Answer ALS will activate its research initiative before the end of 2015 with six initial collection sites and more in the works. The initiative will motivate people living with ALS to participate in the largest effort to end ALS through patient-driven research in the history of the disease.
While more does not always mean better, big numbers are essential in this case to enable our team to deeply mine enough data to begin to truly understand ALS.
The current participating sites are:

The time is right for this initiative. Although the Nobel prize-winning iPSC technology is still relatively new, we have shown that it can be used to discover and develop new therapeutics. This initiative could dramatically accelerate ALS therapeutics discovery and change the face of ALS forever.

Apply to the Answer ALS Advisory Council
We are honored to have you apply to participate in the Answer ALS Advisory Council. Our mission is to create a diverse Council that will faithfully represent the entire ALS community.
Council members will be asked to commit to a minimum of 6 hours per month. Travel is not required.
Once received, your application will be reviewed. Although there are limited places on the Council, many committees for immediate action will also be created. We hope you will accept if called upon for participation on any level. We are currently evaluating all applications for the Full Council, but feel free to leave your information if interested in participating when there is availability.
Tell us a little about yourself.
