Symposium LIVE

Welcome to the periodic table of MND research

Find out everything you need to know about the 29th International Symposium on ALS/MND and the research being discussed using our periodic table.

There are seven sections in the table; you can click on a section heading in the key to read about that group of tiles and why it is important in MND research. There are also individual tiles covering things such as the genes associated with MND, possible triggers for the disease or drugs being trialed. You can click on an individual tile to read about that research element and how it is featuring in the Symposium.
