Answer ALS Foundation

Answer ALS is the single largest and most comprehensive ALS research project in history, producing more ALS data than has ever been amassed, while openly sharing with the global research community. We are using that data to investigate the unique pathways of each variation of ALS and begin to develop the right treatments or cure. We believe that only a large-scale concerted and coordinated effort will make the difference in finding the answers to ALS. Answer ALS is an unprecedented approach to understanding and defeating the disease.

New to UNO, Answer ALS is beginning to engage with UNO on several levels. One direction is with UNO’s Data Analytics program to help us best explore the massive trove of data collected on the disease and those living with it. Additionally, we are looking forward to engaging with the Computer Science program to help us expand medical home monitoring through assistive device and mobile applications.
