As a new feature of the Symposium Blogathon, Research Coordinator Charlotte sat down with other members of the Research Development team who are involved in organising the Symposium to find out more about what’s involved. They chatted about the roles they play in bringing this event to the global stage and what they are most looking forward to at the Symposium this year.

We hope you’ve joined us from the beginning, but if you’ve missed any blogs, you can catch up on them here. If you have been following along, we hope you’ve enjoyed the small taster of what’s to come at the symposium this year and look forward to you joining us at the event! If you haven’t already registered, it’s not too late!

Registration is open until 11:59pm tonight (GMT)

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.
