We are dedicated to changing the future through ALS research. With your support we can accelerate these discoveries and develop new treatments, therapies and cures.

Donate Online

By making a charitable contribution to the ALS Research Support Fund, you are playing a critical role in driving medical breakthroughs. The new therapeutic methods being developed in the Miller Lab not only benefit ALS, but are also paving the way for similar therapeutic strategies in many other neurodegenerative diseases, such as Huntington’s disease, SMA, and Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Human Tissue

Scientific research of most diseases, including ALS, depends on the direct study of human tissues that have been affected by the disease. These tissues are generously donated by patients who are willing to undergo autopsies after their deaths.

  1. Notify the Neuromuscular Office at 314-362-6981 of your wishes.
  2. Supply patient’s name, date of birth, and phone numbers where the next-of-kin can be reached.
  3. Follow prompts to initiate research autopsy.
