Leading researchers and experts on MND (ALS) gathered in Glasgow this month for the 29th Annual International Symposium organised by MND Association and hosted by MND Scotland.
Doddie and My Name'5 Doddie Foundation Medical Strategy Lead, Sean McGrath, attended this important event and met a number of key neurologists and researchers, as well as HRH The Princess Royal who is Royal Patron of MNDA.
It was the 29th Symposium and is now firmly established as the best place to get a general overview of the state of current research in ALS - especially multidisciplinary areas. The key to defeating MND lies in fostering strong collaboration between leading researchers around the world, and sharing new understanding of the disease as rapidly as possible. This was the MND Association’s rationale behind the creation of the International Symposium on ALS/MND.
