    Research Abstract

    The present NiSALS website has been set up to provide an interactive platform for research centers specializing in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Neuroimaging research. Suffering from a deadly and rapidly progressing disease, ALS patients and their families provide MRI data to find a better diagnostic tool and a better disease marker. They expect researchers to gather more insights into the causes of a terrifying disease, and thus help to develop effective therapies in the future. Until today, it is very difficult to analyze MRI data from many different centers. NISALS aims to fill this gap and provide quality controlled MRI data for the international scientific community from countries all over the world.
