Meet the Team

Please welcome Amber Malcolm, MSN, RN, ACNP-BC, our new ALS nurse practitioner!

Amber Malcolm joined the Neuromuscular Division in October, 2016. Her role is two-fold: providing clinical care for persons with ALS and helping expand ALS research opportunities at Washington University. Clinical care of ALS patients includes meeting with them in the Thursday clinic as well as providing a central point of contact for patients as they deal with the challenges of ALS. Amber’s research responsibilities include assessing patients and reviewing medical records as well as performing measurements for many different ALS studies. The goal is to increase the number of observational and interventional trials while providing comprehensive clinical care.
