Help fund the next generation of MND researchers

Finding a cure for MND is likely to take many years and will most likely be found, not by the scientists of today, but by the scientists of tomorrow. Our PhD studentships encourage promising young students to develop a career in MND research.

The grants of approximately £100,000 over three years are awarded to established senior researchers, based at UK institutes, who have demonstrable experience of postgraduate student supervision. The senior researcher will recruit a student who holds a first or upper second-class honours degree. The PhD students are asked to submit annual reports as well as a final report at the end of the grant period.

"After completing my PhD studies I plan on using my knowledge and experience to develop new platforms for drug screening, which will further facilitate drug discovery processes for MND and other neurological disorders.”
