Investing in research

The vast majority of the funds raised by My Name’5 Doddie Foundation is invested into Motor Neuron Disease (MND) research. We take this responsibility seriously and want to share with you how we reach our decisions.

My Name’5 Doddie Foundation was established by Doddie and the trustees in response to his frustration at the lack of options given to MND sufferers – no effective treatment, no access to meaningful clinical trials and no hope.

We could have given our funds to existing charities and bodies to invest on our behalf, but we wanted to be able to make our own decisions and direct funds to where we felt they could have the biggest impact.

Advisory Panel

Our advisory panel

With this in mind, we reached out to leading neuroscientists, professors and medical researchers and invited them to become part of our Advisory Panel. We now regularly engage with the research community to seek their advice and to help us better understand MND and work towards finding a cure.

The Advisory Panel helps drive the Foundation’s strategy for investment.

Our Head of Medical Strategy, Sean McGrath, coordinates our Advisory Panel meetings and our relationship with MND centres of excellence.

Our focus is to invest in clinical trials.
