I have been lucky in the past two years to work at the International Symposium on ALS/MND, and am always inspired by the enthusiasm, and commitment of the delegates attending.
Observing all the discussions and networking which takes place during the lunch/dinner breaks is always an exciting time, along with hearing about the new research which is taking place, and the partnerships which are being formed.
The MND Association’s vision is a world free from MND. Realising this vision means investing more in research, further developing partnerships with the research community, funding bodies and industry, while ensuring that advances in understanding and treating MND are communicated as quickly and effectively as possible. Our Research Development team, composed of 11 members, work hard to achieve this. Principally, the Research Information team within this are involved in communication activities including this MND Research blog.
