Funding over three years for individual projects to research healthcare-related aspects of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and related conditions.
The MND Association supports biomedical and healthcare-related research on Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and related conditions, in all relevant disciplines, to further understanding of the causes and disease mechanisms of Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and facilitate the translation of therapeutic strategies from the laboratory to the clinic.
The objectives of the MND Association healthcare research programme are to fund research aimed at increasing treatment options and improving clinical/healthcare practice and disease management to support not only people living with MND but also caregivers and families. The four key strategic themes of its Research Strategy (2018-2021) are:
- Identify therapeutic targets
- Understand clinical progression
- Develop a treatment pipeline
- Improve standards of care
The MND Association Healthcare Research Project Grants provide funding over a maximum of three years to support research into healthcare-related aspects of ALS and related conditions. Projects should aim to answer a single question or a small group of related questions.
