We are proud to share that the winner of the MND Australia Betty Laidlaw MND Research Prize for 2017 is Associate Professor Justin Yerbury from the University of Wollongong. This $250,000 grant is awarded to an outstanding mid-career researcher and made possible thanks to the generous sponsorship of John Laidlaw AO in honour of his wife, Betty, who is living with MND. Associate Professor Yerbury’s project
will investigate dysfunction of proteins in nerve endings as a cause of MND. Congratulations and thank you for your work, A/Prof Yerbury.
