ALS Consortium of Epidemiologic Studies (ACES)

For Researchers

The ALS Consortium of Epidemiologic Studies (ACES) is a resource for scientists who are carrying out research (or planning future research) to identify environmental, lifestyle and genetic determinants of ALS. Interdisciplinary collaborations among epidemiologists, neurologists, geneticists, toxicologists and other researchers are necessary to address the complex etiology of ALS.

A major challenge to research progress is the relative rarity of ALS. Many of the most pressing research questions, particularly the investigation of gene-environment interaction, cannot be adequately addressed in single studies. Therefore, the ultimate goal of ACES is to join data from single studies into larger scale multicenter efforts.
