We received applications from across the UK and have selected 4 new research projects to fund:
This project aims to develop new therapies to protect the motor neurones (nerve cells connecting the spinal cord to muscles) against MND.
Researchers will investigate the real-life impact of specific types of apathy on people living with MND, and their families.
This project seeks to fully investigate the nature of metabolic dysfunction using ALS model systems and to take these ideas into human ALS trials.
Researchers will look at a particular gene and how changes in the gene (called mutations) react with proteins which help protect motor neurones.
Many thanks to the generosity of our supporters. Without you we would not be able to continue funding vital research into a cure.
