Baseline is the steady/consistent rate of MND progression. Baseline measurements are used in clinical trials to set a persons rate of progression before any treatment is given. This is important when observing if a treatment improves or worsens progression.

I work in the Research Development team as a Senior Research Information Co-ordinator. I graduated from the University of Nottingham with a PhD in Chemistry in 2020. After finishing my PhD, I joined an R&D company based in Nottingham where I spent my time synthesising potential new drug treatments for a wide variety of diseases. As part of my role I will help the team communicate the latest MND research on this blog, as well as on our twitter page (@MNDResearch).
