The ENCALS 2019 Conference took place last week in Tours, France with a strong contingent from the Irish ALS/MND Research Group at Trinity College. Excellent talks were given by PhD candidates Emmet Costello, Marie Ryan, Roisin McMackin and Stefan Dukic. Congratulations also to the four poster prize winners; James Rooney, Ranga Chipika, Amina Coffey and Antonio Fasano all from the Irish group.
