NIH ALS Conference: Clinical Research to Find the Pathogenesis and Cause of ALS

Wednesday, September 07, 2011 - Friday, September 09, 2011
Tarrytown House Estate and Conference Center, Tarrytown, NY

This conference is designed to stimulate the development of collaborative research projects between amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) physicians and basic scientists. It is expected that conference participants will develop a consensus regarding current research gaps and recommended next steps to enhance patient-oriented research in ALS. The previous “Tarrytown 1” conference, which was held in 2003, resulted in the formation of a new ALS research group that facilitated the biobanking of ALS biospecimens. It is expected that the 2011 conference will have similar tangible results.
