Led by Dr Michael Benatar at the University of Miami, we are a team that is dedicated to research in the field of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), with a particular focus on familial ALS. We collaborate with many other scientists across the country and in Europe on a wide variety of studies. We hope that you find the content of this website of interest and value to you.
