MND does not respect national boundaries and neither does our research efforts.
There are so many researchers, clinicians and health and social care professionals from around the world who dedicate their whole careers to unlocking the secrets of MND. What makes me optimistic about research, are the people who push research to the next level.
This can be seen through researchers collaborating with others on an international scale to push their studies forwards. They can also help to develop young PhD students into the new generation of researchers who will be able to bring new and exciting ideas to the table in years to come.
Being an expert in MND research is a big enough achievement in itself but by sharing their knowledge they can inspire others to achieve and ensure that the world of MND research is in safe hands for the future.
Seeing this inspirational optimism from the researchers themselves makes me optimistic about the future of MND research.
