What is MND ?
How We Can Help
We fund research throughout the UK which is taking us closer to a cure and improves the lives of those living with Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
We are only able to fund this research because of the money raised from donations, fundraising, and gifts in Wills.
Find out more about the important research we are currently funding:
Gordon Aikman, passed away from MND in 2017
MIROCALS is a clinical drug trial, currently recruiting in Glasgow, testing a new potential therapy for ALS.
Danielle Leighton began her 36 month Research Fellowship in August 2015.
The Scottish MND Register was set up to collect and store information about people with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) in Scotland.
CARE-MND is an exciting new national platform empowering people living with MND in Scotland to directly influence the provision of clinical care and research.
Gareth’s project will investigate how some cells become toxic to motor neurones and what toxic signals they send to motor neurones.
Chris will analyse the connections between cells in the brain to discover if a loss of these connections is associated with the changes in behaviour and brain function in people with MND.
Catherine's project involves the development of a new model that can be used for testing treatments.
This project aims to develop new therapies to protect the motor neurones (nerve cells connecting the spinal cord to muscles) against MND.
This project 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.
This project will look at a particular gene and how changes in the gene (called mutations) react with proteins which help protect motor neurones.
