This October marks 11 years since the National ALS Registry was established and began recruiting patients living with ALS. Researchers have made progress in the past decade in learning more about ALS; however, there is still a long way to go to fully understand the disease. Despite remaining knowledge gaps in ALS research, the Registry is extremely grateful for the participation from all the people living with ALS around the country.
