The calibre of the researchers who presented at MND NSW Ask the Experts Monday 5 November 2018, was excellent. Dr Rebekah Ahmed, Consultant Neurologist, Senior Lecturer and Director of the Memory and Cognition Clinic at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and the University of Sydney, provided a very interesting overview of MND. Professor Ian Blair, Director of the Macquarie University Centre for Motor Neuron Disease Research, explored genetic factors and MND and Dr Shyuan Ngo, Scott Sullivan MND Research Fellow at the University of Queensland, explained about getting involved in MND research and clinical trials. There were many thoughtful questions from the participants. Feedback from day included “Lots of information and a greater understanding”, “More insight into the research into MND and the clinical trials”, “Greater optimism” and “Very encouraged by the huge amount of research being done”.
The #icebucketchallenge is a challenge to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) or ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Participants in the challenge have 24 hours to either donate to their local MND Association or dump a bucket of ice water over their heads (although most do both!). Then they challenge three others to Take the Challenge. Here, our supporters take the challenge for MND NSW.
