Our Mission
is to deliver high-quality, compassionate and comprehensive ALS clinical care and to pursue cutting-edge research focused on finding new therapies for ALS.

The Washington University in St. Louis ALS Center provides quality care, state-of-the-art treatment, and research opportunities to patients diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease.

We bring ALS disciplines together under a single umbrella, offering a full spectrum of treatment while working toward the development of new therapies and, one day, a cure. Our multidisciplinary team of world-class physicians, clinicians and researchers collaborate to solve challenges, design innovative therapies, and provide life-enhancing treatment for ALS in St. Louis, Missouri and the entire Midwest region.

We understand that ALS doesn’t just affect health: the disease also impacts work, family, and social lives.

“Our Center brings together clinical care for patients with ALS, clinical trials to find effective therapies, and basic science and translational research to understand the mechanisms behind the disease.”
