What is ALS?
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease. ALS attacks cells in the brain and spinal cord that are needed to keep muscles moving, leading to muscle weakness and paralysis.
Catching up with our ALS scientist friends
We took some time to catch up with ALS scientist friends Dr. Janice Robertson and Dr. Agnes Lau. Check out what they have to say about how the lab is running during COVID19, what's new in ALS research and bit about clinical trials also.
