As mentioned on the home page, we are a clinical/translational research group led by Dr. Michael Benatar and Joanne Wuu at the University of Miami. Members of the group include neurologists, biostatistician, [???], genetic counselor, neuropsychologist, project and data managers, and research coordinators (click here to see team members). Our research program focuses on advancing ALS therapy development by identifying and filling knowledge gaps that have, in the past, hampered the development of effective treatments. This approach has required us to work at the intersection of clinical (deep) phenotyping, natural history studies, pre-symptomatic disease, biomarker development, genetics, environmental exposures, novel data collection methods, and clinical trials.
