NIH Program: Accelerating Leading-Edge Science in ALS
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced it will invest $25 million over the next five years to spur innovative research on ALS and examine the links between ALS and other neurodegenerative disorders. To put this in perspective, this is the kind of bold investment and commitment that NIH has made in the fight against HIV and cancer that led to critical breakthroughs.
We will find cures for ALS. The only question is when. That answer depends on you.

Where the Money Goes
One of the most important roles we have as an organization is to be a good steward of the donations you provide to focus on accelerating promising research and getting treatments in the hands of patients — not in 20 years, but as soon as possible. In 2020, I AM ALS funded $500,000 in ALS research grants.
