THE PROJECT ALS MISSION
Project ALS identifies and funds the most promising scientific research that will lead to the first effective treatments and a cure for ALS. We recruit the world’s best scientists and doctors to work together—rationally and aggressively—to develop a better understanding of the ALS disease process and, in parallel, better therapeutic strategies.
Project ALS is the world’s first ALS organization to focus exclusively on research. We have raised over $100 million in 22 years to fund ALS research programs at leading academic institutions including Harvard University, Columbia University, UCSF, and the Salk Institute, and have made significant progress toward a cure for ALS.
Read about the latest updates and breakthroughs in ALS research, and see the Project ALS research philosophy – something we’re proud to say has accelerated the pace of research.

Meredith met Project ALS in 2013 when her mother, Carol Kleiner, was diagnosed with ALS at 57. The Kleiner family, with their friends and community, formed Carol's Crew & raised over $1.5M for the Kleiner Family Research Initiative at Project ALS. https://t.co/oJOCuVshUkRead More
