A “Familial ALS” webinar was hosted by the ALS Therapy Development Institute on March 16, 2011 at 7PM (EDT). This month’s webinar featured Dr. Fernando Vieira from ALS TDI and Dr. Michael Benatar from the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine. Together they walked us through the known genetics of ALS, how that information is being used in the lab today to identify “pathways” as well as to test potential therapeutics, and current clinical investigations relevant to fALS families.

A copy of this webinar, which lasted about 90 minutes, is now available online at: http://als.net/Podcasts/Default.aspx.  You may also download it as a podcast in iTunes. The next webinar will be on April 6th from 1-3PM.
