The MND research group at Trinity College Dublin have been awarded a €200,000 grant by the EU Joint Programme – Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND). The grant is part of a European wide initiative to improve health care policies, strategies and interventions. This accomplishment was recently discussed in the Irish Times alongside commendation of the work of Colm Murray to raise awareness of MND.
Prof Hardiman was quoted as sayimg, “What he did for motor neurone disease was very important. For everybody within MND, it is a tragic disease and Colm’s tragedy was the same as others, but the fact that he was so well loved by people made a big difference.”
