Congratulations to our very own PhD candidate Róisín McMackin for being awarded the highly competitive Brainbox Initiative Research Challenge prize for 2020!!
This award will provide Róisín with state-of-the-art neurostimulation equipment, further expert training and funding to perform a ground-breaking pilot study in MND and Huntington’s disease.
The research will investigate how neural networks which connect cognitive and motor areas of the brain are affected by these neurodegenerative diseases and how these connections relate to each patient’s disease symptoms.
Well done Róisín, The lab is super proud!!
