We would like to thank everybody who turned up to support a very special “Drink Tea for MND” event, held in Trinity College on Tuesday 16th June, 2015. This special information event saw the joining of forces of the iMNDA and RMN and we wish to thank all those who facilitated the smooth running of the event.

Professor Orla Hardiman & her research team, provided updates on the ongoing vital research in the area of motor neurone disease. Guests had the opportunity to speak with Professor Hardiman and her team on the various research programmes currently been undertaken by TCD MND Research. Tours of the MND research facility were also facilitated.

The main research themes for discussion with Professor Hardiman and her team were:

1. Epidemiology
2. Genetics
3. Neuropsychology
4. Biomarkers
5. Health services and mapping the patient journey
6. Drug developments and clinical trials

 

This was a great opportunity for the MND community to come together and join the global fight against Motor Neurone Disease. Thank you all once again for your continued support on our quest towards a better understanding of this devastating disease.
