Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS): Progress and Promise in Stem Cell Research

CIRM has funded the ALS Disease Team led by scientists at UC San Diego, The Salk Institute, and Life Technologies Corporation who aim to bring a human embryonic stem cell based ALS therapy to clinical trials within four years. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a progressive motor neuron disorder. Most people with ALS die within 3 to 5 years from the onset of symptoms.
