The report reviews key players involved in the therapeutics development for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
and enlists all their major and minor projects

Background: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
(ALS) is a fatal neurodegenerative disease that primarily affects motor neurons and has no effective treatment.
When Stephen, the younger brother, was diagnosed with the fatal disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
(ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, at age 29, Jamie quit his job as a mechanical engineer and transformed himself into a genetics expert in an effort to find a cutting-edge therapy that could save his brother's life, Weiner, a science writer who won a Pulitzer prize for his last book, Beak of the Finch, learned of the Heywoods and became immersed in their lives, employing his reporter's prowess to aid Jamie's research.
Current branch areas of study include the fetal basis of adult disease; developmental toxicology; neurodevelopmental and neurobehavioral disorders, including autism; asthma; endocrine disruption and diseases, including male and female reproductive diseases and dysfunction; immunotoxicology and autoimmunity; cardiovascular and pulmonary disease; and neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
