Study Of Genetic And Environmental Risk Factors For Motor Neuron Diseases

Description

Seeking people diagnosed with a motor neuron disease such as ALS or muscular dystrophy or a family member of someone with a neuromuscular disease for a study of genetic and environmental risk factors for the disease.

Overview

Participants in this study will be asked to answer questionnaires and provide samples of blood, cheek cells, and/or skin.

What we're hoping for

We hope to better understand genetic and environmental risk factors for neuromuscular diseases such as ALS or muscular dystrophy by collecting samples and info from people diagnosed with motor neuron diseases and their family members.
