We’ve been blogging for a year…

Reading Time: < 1 minute

In the past year, our blog has been viewed nearly 16,000 times.

We’ve written 97 articles to take people behind the scenes of MND research, including explaining exciting news stories – like the first results from the BioMOx project (funded by the MND Association) and new genetic causes of MND. We’ve also taken you to conferences including the New York MND Stem Cell Conference and the International Symposium on ALS/MND. We’ve even taken you to the official announcement that we are funding a cutting-edge stem cell research programme with Prof Sir Ian Wilmut (creator of Dolly the sheep) and Prof Siddharthan Chandran who are leading part of the project from Edinburgh.
