Visualising FUS

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Prof Vladimir Buchman (Cardiff University) was awarded funding by the MND Association for his research into the fused-in-sarcoma (FUS) protein. Dr Tatyana Shelkovnikova began the project in April 2014. Find out more here.

“For the MND Association’s blog a day we have this very nice (we think it is nice!) collage illustrating how FUS aggregates (green) gradually develop in cultured cells expressing a mutant form of this protein -enjoy the image!”

Thank you for reading our ‘blog a day’ this Awareness Month. We would gratefully appreciate your thoughts and feedback via this short 2 minute survey.

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.
