CLT-01 The NEALS Consortium - a collaborative research organization. Background: NEALS is a non-profit organization that aims to successfully promote both research and awareness of ALS, encouraging collaborations among clinicians, researchers, and industry through a commitment to open scientific communication. The efforts of NEALS members are recognized by disease foundations, research groups, and industry, generating critical support through awards and project funding.Objectives: Bringing together a group of distinguished scientists and researchers over the nearly quarter century since its inception, NEALS has developed novel research approaches and recruited a number of new investigators into the field of ALS research in an effort to accelerate ALS clinical trials through academic input and partnership.Methods: The NEALS Consortium adheres to an inclusive policy of adding clinical sites wherever there is interest and expertise, improving access to trials in regions where trial participation was not previously available. NEALS sites include 127 academic ALS trial centers in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Lebanon, Italy, Australia and Israel.Education and Participation of the PALS Community in Clinical ResearchAnnual Clinical Research Learning InstitutePALS & CALS as Research AmbassadorsAdvocacy efforts by Research AmbassadorsNEALS website & clinical trial database: http://www.
