The ALSRP Therapeutic/Biomarker Pilot Trial Award supports the rapid implementation of clinical trials with the potential to have a significant impact on the treatment or management of ALS. Clinical trials may be designed to evaluate promising drugs, biologics, or devices with anticipated therapeutic impact that is supported by strong scientific rationale and existing preclinical data. Projects may range from Phase 1 to small-scale Phase 2 trials and should be designed to de-risk and inform the design of more advanced trials, by investigating safety, feasibility, biomarker application, and therapeutic efficacy in relevant patient populations. Funding from this award mechanism must support a clinical trial and the trial design must include plans to generate compelling biomarker data. Principal Investigators (PIs) seeking funding for a preclinical research project or standalone biomarker development should alternatively consider one of the other FY21 ALSRP Funding Opportunity Announce...
