ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Progress


The Lawrence R. Barnett Research Council

Lawrence R. Barnett, founding chairman of The ALS Association, passed away on June 11, 2012.  Barnett, who became affectionately known as the “grandfather” of The ALS Association, was unparalleled in his devotion to finding a cure for ALS.  In tribute to Barnett’s tireless support of The ALS Association and its work to find a cure for ALS, the National Board of Trustees renamed the Research Council in his honor in 2010.

Help Lead the Way to a Cure for ALS

Our global research effort, TREAT ALS (Translational Research Advancing Therapy for ALS), is an international program that funds research in all phases—laboratory science, drug development, clinical trials--critical to understanding ALS and finding a cure.  Partnering with academia and industry, TREAT’s support for ALS research is collaborative and comprehensive.  Priorities include:

Resources are needed to ensure that the promising pace of discovery continues.  When you become a member of The Lawrence R. Barnett Research Council with a gift of $1,000 or more, you help deliver hope to people living with ALS.
