Project Description

The Stan Cassidy Centre for Rehabilitation follows approximately 60 people with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) at a time. This project investigates the population of ALS patients, including patterns of incidence and prevalence, with particular focus on apparent clusters of ALS patients. The hypothesis is that the investigation will lead to the discovery of clusters of ALS in New Brunswick, contributing to our understanding and prediction of ALS.
