The ALS/MND Unit of the University Hospital of Bellvitge (HUB) – Miquel Valls Foundation provides multidisciplinary and specialized care for people with ALS and other motor neuron diseases.

We collaborate with many different partners to support and promote ALS research. For example, our center works together with INP (Institute of Neuropathology of HUB) and IDIBELL (Institute of Biomedical Research of Bellvitge), Biobank HUB-ICO-Idibell (DNA and other samples of ALS patients), and CIBERNED (Network Centre for the Study of Neurodegenerative Diseases; National Institute of Health Carlos III).

The Miquel Valls Foundation is a non-profit organization that aims to improve the quality of life of people suffering from ALS and offers support to their families. The foundation also promotes research in ALS.
