Two MND clinicians have been awarded Medical Research Council (MRC) /MND Association Lady Edith Wolfson Clinical Research Fellowships to help advance our understanding of MND while moulding future experts.

The MND Association Lady Edith Wolfson Clinical Research Fellowship scheme plays a vital role in helping us strengthen and translate emerging knowledge from the lab to treatment strategies for people living with the motor neurone disease, while creating new innovative and exciting scientific leaders in the field.

These new fellowships, granted to Dr Martin Turner and Dr Jemeen Sreedharan will drive us forward to achieve the Association’s aim of unlocking the secrets of this cruel disease to identify promising new treatments.

Our Director of Research Development Dr Brian Dickie commented, “These new fellowships represent £2.6 million of investment not only in cutting-edge science, but also in the career development of two future leaders in MND research and treatment.”

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.
