Whole New Ballgame for ALS Research


Join Our Team Support Us

LiveLikeLou is excited to announce It’s a Whole New Ballgame for ALS Research, a campaign to team up with Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) in Nashville, Tennessee, to establish new, pre-clinical, and innovative ALS science at this top-tier research institution. 

Our commitment is to help fund Middle Tennessee's largest investment in ALS discovery, and build a community of support to sustain new science for this disease that needs more ‘at bats’ to find a treatment or a cure. 

Meet Nashville's Evan and Eben, a courageous family facing the ALS journey, committed to our campaign for ALS research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. See their story within our campaign video.

Today's basic research investments are tomorrow's treatments and cures. Learn more about LiveLikeLou's commitment to basic ALS science.

Our Phase One goal is to raise $3.5 million and help recruit a translational scientist (MD/PhD, MD or PhD) to serve as VUMC’s new Director of ALS Research, charged with leading pre-clinical, novel science investigations, building a diverse, dynamic, and productive research laboratory, and supporting the ALS clinical practice and research, leveraging the excellent research capabilities and reputation of the Vanderbilt community.

Thank you for helping us to Leave ALS Better Than We Found It!
