Treeway highly values collaboration. Only through collaborations is it possible to speed up the translation of research findings into potential therapeutics.

Director and Principal Investigator: Dr. Leonard H. van den Berg.
Tricals, ALS Clinical Trial Center
Tricals short for the Treatment Research Institute for the Cure of ALS, is the international, online platform for people with ALS. Treeway actively connects with TRICALS to speed up clinical research and ultimately find a treatment for ALS, for more information: www.tricals.org
Treeway’s two founders, Bernard Muller and Robbert Jan Stuit, are the initiators of Project MinE, the world’s largestresearch initiative devoted to discovering the genetic cause of ALS.
The ultimate goal is to identify genes that are associated with ALS. The function of these genes may lead to disease pathways for which, treatment can be developed. Project MinE plans to map the full DNA profiles of 15,000 people with ALS and compare them to DNA profiles of at least 7,500 control subjects to uncover associations between specific variations in genes and ALS.
