Peer reviewers

In 2014, faced with unprecedented funds to invest in ALS research following the Ice Bucket Challenge, ALS Canada evolved our peer review process to include panels of international ALS experts for the first time. This breadth of involvement from the scientific community was identified to ensure that the research investments made would have impact on the global effort towards better understanding and treating ALS.

Thank you to the 65 researchers who have generously supported the ALS Canada Research Program by participating on at least one peer review panel between 2014 and 2017.
