We offer multidisciplinary patient care to 200 patients from all over Switzerland. Patients are seen on a regular basis, usually every three months. In addition, we are engaged in numerous research projects. These cover a broad spectrum reaching from quality of life research to genetic research. Most of the projects are collaborations with other ALS/MND centers. Clinical neurophysiology is a corner stone in our routine clinical practice and also in some research projects. Our mission is to provide holistic care to ALS patients and caregivers and to contribute to ALS research.
