About The Center

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig's Disease is a progressive, paralyzing, fatal disease. The MDA-ALS Center and multidisciplinary clinic is the clinical arm of the Live Like Lou Center for ALS Research in the Brain Institute at the University of Pittsburgh.  Our patients are treated by ALS experts  in a multidisciplinary setting and are eligible to participate in research. We work in collaboration with other physicians, scientists, and health care workers to TREAT and SUPPORT PATIENTS WITH ALS and to IMPROVE DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT LEADING TO A CURE.
