Importance of ALS Tissue for Research

The University of Maryland Brain and Tissue Bank acknowledges the recent expansion of the Blazeman ALS Tissue Collection and how this donation allows them to directly market the availability of ALS Tissue to researchers. This current fiscal year, ALS is ranked number one in terms of the number of samples they have shared from neurologic and developmental disease tissue. Future opportunities include working closely with the BMF to identify specific ALS investigators with whom they might establish a working relationship to expedite their research.
