The Clinical Research in ALS and Related Disorders for Therapeutic Development (CReATeConsortium is part of the Rare Diseases Clinical Research Network (RDCRN), a NIH-funded research network of 20 active consortia or research groups—teams of researchers, patients and clinicians—each focused on a group of rare disorders. The network fosters collaborative research among scientists to better understand how particular rare diseases progress and to develop improved approaches for diagnosis and treatment.

CReATe's Mission: will enroll patients with sporadic and familial forms of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, frontotemporal dementia (FTD), primary lateral sclerosis (PLS), hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP), and progressive muscular atrophy (PMA). The goals of the CReATe consortium are to advance therapeutic development for this group of neurodegenerative disorders through study of the relationship between clinical phenotype and underlying genotype, and also through the discovery and development of biomarkers.
