Alberta to lead national ALS research team

With today's announcement by the ALS Society of Canada of $15 million in grants for research projects across Canada, this money is now being put to use to help patients and families living with this fatal disease.

The largest grant - $2.94 million - has been awarded to Dr. Sanjay Kalra, co-medical director of the Alberta Health Services' ALS Clinic in the Edmonton Zone, and University of Alberta Professor in the Department of Medicine (Neurology). Dr. Kalra and his research team (including 5 Albertans and 3 BME Faculty members) intend to use Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technology to study changes in the brains of people with ALS.
