Biomedical Research Advisory Panel
The MND Association's peer review of biomedical research grant applications is carried out by the Biomedical Research Advisory Panel (BRAP). The members of this panel are neuroscientists and clinical neurologists with particular expertise in MND research. BRAP members are appointed by the Board of Trustees of the MND Association on the recommendation of the Director of Research Development. The BRAP also includes up to two members of our Board of Trustees.
