“A Cure for ALS” is the research fund of the ALS League, Belgium. Donations to the fund are spent entirely on scientific research, without any deduction of administrative costs. At any given time several research projects are being promoted jointly by the ALS League. Donations are collected in a centralized fund; priorities for funding are allocated autonomously by the ALS League. Operations are targeted and transparent: intentions, objectives, costs and specific expectations are detailed for each individual project on the website of the ALS League. A counter monitors the total amount of donations collected so far. Every time a donation is being transferred, the counter is adjusted accordingly.

Prof Van Damme and Prof. Van Den Bosch are, for many years, specializing in ALS research at the KU Leuven / VIB. On the one hand, they focus on stem cell research, by which from the body cells of ALS patients, human stem cells including motor neurons are generated and studied. On the other hand mechanisms that lead to the loss of motor neurons are being unraveled and factors that affect the disease process are being mapped by means of the insertion of defect human ALS genetic material in the fruit fly as an animal model.

"The ALS League is proud of the Belgian researchers and the progress they make. That's why we have chosen to support them through donations to the ALS Association," says Evy Reviers, CEO. "For many years, we enjoy a fruitful collaboration with the University of Leuven and we like supporting a breakthrough."
