This research update is produced by the MND Research Institute of Australia - the research arm of MND Australia. Read the latest MND research news.
MND NSW provides information, support and education for people living with motor neurone disease, their families, friends and carers in NSW, ACT, the Gold Coast and NT. We also provide information and education about motor neurone disease for health, community and residential care professionals.
The first article of results from ALS Quest has been published! ALS Quest is looking for risk factors that might precipitate motor neurone disease (MND) and participants (with or without MND) complete an online anonymous questionnaire. The first set of data analysis has looked at the ratio of the length of the index finger to the ring finger and incidence of MND.
Do you want to know what’s new in motor neurone disease research, current clinical trials and effective treatments for MND? Reserve your place at MND Connect, an interactive forum connecting people impacted by MND, with Australia's leading MND researchers. In 2017 this Forum will be held in New South Wales at the University of Sydney. People with a disability and their carers may reserve a disabled parking spot at the venue, or receive a wheelchair taxi voucher or subsidised travel from a regional area to attend this event.
