MND Association's DNA bank
The MND Association's DNA bank and clinical database collected 3,400 samples from people with MND, spouse / partner controls and family members from 2003 to 2011. We anticipate making the samples available to the international research community in 2013.
How to access samples within the Bank
Researchers will be able to apply to the MND Association for access to the DNA bank samples and accompanying clinical information in 2013. We would be happy to receive informal enquiries in the interim.
The logistics of the collection of samples for the DNA bank was based on a 'Hub and spoke' model. All users of samples from the Bank must acknowledge the contribution of the participating centres in presentations and research papers. This may be done by citing this page
