The Emory ALS Center combines state of the art clinical care with cutting edge clinical and basic research. The Emory ALS Clinic provides multidisciplinary care to ALS patients and their families, focusing on independence and quality of life through state of the art intervention. Our research focuses on basic mechanisms of motor neuron degeneration, genetics of ALS, and new experimental treatments. Patients and families should call 404 778-3444 for information and appointments.
We at the Emory ALS Center are passionate about providing the best care for patients and families, but we are also passionate about finding causes and cures for this disease. This dual mission of the Emory ALS Center requires support for foundations, government, and individuals. We are fortunate to have the support of both the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the ALS Association of Georgia, as well as research funding from the National Institutes of Health, the Packard Center for ALS Research, and Emory University. Of course, our ability to provide resources to patients and innovative research is directly related to funding these two important missions. There are many ways that you can participate, and we welcome any help you can provide. How You Can Help Page
