MND Engage was a one-day collaborative event, bringing together MND researchers and people affected by MND. The inaugural event was held at the Francis Crick Institute in London on 23 July. The event, organised by researchers Jasmine Harley, Giulia Tyzack and Helen Divine, and supported by the MND Association’s Research Development and Communications teams, brought together MND researchers from several UK laboratories working on MND in order to explore ways in which public engagement in MND research could be improved.
As we’ve mentioned in previous posts, our current research grants round is our biggest yet with 19 full applications being reviewed by our research advisory panel. But what does that look like? And what do we have to do to prepare these applications for our research advisory panel?
To answer these questions (and more), and give you a brief insight into the work that our research grants team do to ensure we fund the very best research, we’ve made a short film featuring Dr Sadie Vile, our research grants manager and Natasha Rowe, our research grants administrator as the voiceover.
