The calibre of the researchers who presented at MND NSW Ask the Experts Monday 5 November 2018, was excellent. Dr Rebekah Ahmed, Consultant Neurologist, Senior Lecturer and Director of the Memory and Cognition Clinic at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and the University of Sydney, provided a very interesting overview of MND.
Professor Ian Blair, Director of the Macquarie University Centre for Motor Neuron Disease Research, explored genetic factors and MND and Dr Shyuan Ngo, Scott Sullivan MND Research Fellow at the University of Queensland, explained about getting involved in MND research and clinical trials. There were many thoughtful questions from the participants. Feedback from day included “Lots of information and a greater understanding”, “More insight into the research into MND and the clinical trials”, “Greater optimism” and “Very encouraged by the huge amount of research being done”.
