We are extremely proud to announce that Professor Orla Hardiman’s research project has been selected as one of the 26 successful projects to receive funding as she takes part in the national effort to tackle COVID-19! 

Professor Hardiman and her research team will implement, evaluate and modify a new patient/caregiver-oriented telemedicine system developed by their collaborators in Sheffield University, to provide immediate virtual support for those with Motor Neuron Disease (MND) and Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) and related conditions. They will examine the strengths and opportunities for modification of this system, tailoring it to enhance care for Irish patients and their families.
