ALS Center Leuven

UZ Leuven

The Leuven ALS center combines the diagnosis and multidisciplinary care for ALS and ALS/FTD (frontotemporal dementia) patients with clinical and basic research activities.

UZ Leuven

Our clinical research activities include genetic, imaging (such as PET/MRI), electrophysiological and biomarker studies, as well as phase I-III clinical trials. Our basic research focuses on the generation of patient-derived stem cell models for ALS and FTD to study disease mechanisms. We also use these models to identify and validate molecular targets for new treatments.
