    The purpose of this study is to collect, process, and store biospecimens and clinical information premortem (before death), and link this information to postmortem (after death) tissue samples for current and future research in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), motor neuron diseases, and other medical conditions.

    Participants in this study complete at least one sample collection visit, which includes blood collection and assessments that measure motor neuron and cognitive functions. Additional visits and procedures, such as cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) collection, may be completed if the participant chooses to undergo the optional portions of the study.

    Principal Investigator: Lyle W. Ostrow, MD, PhD

    Site Principal Investigator: Robert Bowser, PhD

    Sponsor: Target ALS (Visit Sponsor Website)
