The USF ALS Clinic has been funded by a generous donation from the Blume family who has played a pivotal part in generating momentum for the opening of our ALS Clinic in October of 2010. The ALS Clinic still needs ongoing financial support to fund the clinic staff and provide the highest quality of care and assistance we can offer our patients and their families. For information about how you can help support neuromuscular research, please visit the USF Foundation website.

The USF ALS clinic is now working diligently to become involved with various clinical trials researching treatments for ALS. We work closely with patients as possible trial candidates and strive to provide opportunities for interested patients to participate in research. (View Map and Driving Directions)
