Augie's Quest, in conjunction with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), is an aggressive, cure-driven effort singularly focused on treatments and cures for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

OUR MISSION

We will do this by:

* Raising funds to support cure-based research, globally.

* Removing the barriers which slow the process of discovery and clinical development of new therapies for the diagnosis and treatment of ALS.

We are a unique force comprised of leading international advocates and professionals from the fields of fitness, nutrition, medicine, and R & D, as well as the Muscular Dystrophy Association. We are ALS patients, their families and friends. And together, we are united to catalyze systematic change.

The MDA and Augie's Quest are working with the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGEN) to try to understand the underlying cause of sporadic ALS. Over the next 6 months, TGEN will test up to a thousand people with ALS to identify, for the first time, the genetic factors that predispose a person to this devastating disease. Discovery of such factors, which have eluded investigators so far, will lead to developing meaningful treatments for ALS.
