Neuromuscular Diseases Unit/ALS Center, Swiss ALS Foundation & ALS Association Switzerland

The Neuromuscular Diseases Unit/ALS Center at the Kantonsspital St.Gallen is the major referral center for ALS patients in Switzerland. The dedicated team provides multidisciplinary holistic care for patients and caregivers and is also engaged in clinical research. Research projects include studies in neurophysiology, genetics, imaging, outcome measures and clinical trials. The center is committed to international collaborations and is therefore participating in Project MinE.

The Swiss ALS Foundation (Schweizerische ALS Stiftung) was founded in 2003 by a young ALS patient Dirk Henauer, who dedicated the last 2 years of his life to the establishment of the foundation. The main goal of the ALS foundation is to foster and support research in ALS. Furthermore the foundation aims to provide support to ALS patients and their relatives. Over the past 10 years the foundation has supported numerous research projects at various academic institutions in Switzerland.

The Neuromuscular Diseases Unit and the Swiss ALS Association are partners in Project MinE. The goal is to analyse 600 DNA samples.
