is a patient driven ALS registry that aims to collect data from persons with ALS. It is coordinated by Dr. Robert Miller, Dr. Jonathan Katz and Dr. Catherine Madison who are physicians with a vast experience in treating ALS patients.

This data base aims to collect information from PALS (Person with ALS) who are not yet captured in data bases such as ALS Care.  We choose to collect data on the internet, because we hope to reach more people in different regions of the nation.  The goal is to obtain long-term follow up data and information about quality of life as well as experiences of PALS.
