Webinar: The Canadian ALS Neuroimaging Consortium (CALSNIC)
Monday, April 24 at 12:00 PM Eastern Time: 30 minutes + questions
Hosted by: Dr. Sanjay Kalra
During this webinar you can expect to learn how Dr. Kalra has built a team of researchers across Canada to develop the ability to perform high powered brain imaging techniques for people living with ALS. This team (called CALSNIC) are currently using this technology to look for biomarkers, which are specific aspects of the brain’s structure that might allow for earlier diagnosis. Identifying biomarkers could help screen people for entry into clinical trials of experimental therapies that are likely to be effective for them, and allow researchers to determine the effectiveness of experimental treatments. An opportunity to ask Dr. Kalra questions will be available after the webinar.
