"Research Today: Implications for Tomorrow"

This talk, given at the Sheffield Open meeting last year generated a lot of interest. Dr Brian Dickie from the association, explained how they work closely with the fantastic SITraN facility here in Sheffield. The association's research pages give an overview of what is happening, plus fact sheets and information on how to get involved. The research blog gives up to date scientific news, and you can get this sent directly to your own email address.

The Association is constantly updating its Publications and Resources. The link below will help you decide if you want to know more about the many aspects of living with MND on a day to day basis. There are many different formats to chose from and help is always available if you want something explained in more detail.  All the information you need.
