UCI ALS Team
The UC Irvine Health MDA-ALS Neuromuscular Center is one of only 44 MDA-designated ALS clinics in the United States and one of only four in California. Our physicians and staff are committed to advancing clinical care, education and research for our patients who are afflicted by this cruel disease. The center offers highly advanced and specialized testing to diagnose ALS. Furthermore, we offer a multidisciplinary clinic composed of respiratory therapists, social workers, physical therapists and speech pathologists who are well-versed in ALS care. By working together as a team, we minimize the disease burden by offering coordinated care through an all in one visit.
Under the guidance of Drs. Tahseen Mozaffar and Namita Goyal, the clinic has been nationally recognized for its role in ground-breaking research designed to understand and treat ALS. Through our Neuromuscular Fellowship program, our highly-experienced physicians are able to train the next generation of neurologists to join in the fight against ALS.
We are the most active center in Southern California in terms of clinical trials for rare neuromuscular diseases, such as ALS. We are proud to offer more clinical trials than any other ALS site in Southern California. Our clinical research coordinators have worked on countless clinical trials and are passionate about helping our patients. Our entire team is dedicated to the continued search for a cure for devastating diseases like ALS.
By donating to our team, you are helping empowering ALSA to help us continue the fight! Living with ALS can cost more than $200,000 per year; the money you donate helps our patients get the equipment they need as they progress. The ALS Ice Bucket challenge brought in a wave of donations that helped our research community get the funding we needed. As a direct result, the knowledge database has grown and we are able to offer more trials than ever.
Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with ALS, and every 90 minutes someone loses their battle to this fatal disease. We want to change this, but we cannot do it alone. Please consider donating to our team so we can continue the fight for our remarkable patients and their loved ones.
