The ALS Consortium of Epidemiologic Studies (ACES)

The ACES is a resource for scientists conducting or planning to embark on epidemiological research inĀ amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The site includes standardized questionnaires and methods of data collection to investigate what environmental, genetic and lifestyle risk factors might contribute to ALS. The consortium was established in 2005 by scientists at Stanford University, and is directed by Lorene Nelson, Ph.D.
