The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) has initiated a strategic planning process to identify the highest priorities for research that will lead to the discovery of effective interventions for the diagnosis, treatment, management, prevention, or cure of ALS. A Steering Committee and topic-based Working Groups comprised of scientists, clinicians, advocates, people living with ALS, and their caregivers will use information from a Request for Information, along with their own knowledge of the research landscape, to develop priorities for accelerating research on the biology behind ALS, translating fundamental research into potential ALS therapies, optimizing ALS clinical research, improving the quality of life for persons living with ALS through research, and identifying opportunities for collaborations and partnerships. These working groups will present their findings at the meeting October 26 and 27, 2022, which will be free and open to the public and will include opportunities for public input on the priorities.
