We thought we’d share this fantastic festive photo of (to our knowledge) the world’s first ‘gingerbread MRI scanner’, lovingly created by students at the Oxford Centre for Functional MRI of the Brain (FMRIB) and kindly sent to us by Dr Martin Turner, lead investigator on the BioMOx study.
Many thanks to everyone who has so enthusiastically participated in BioMOx and our other clinical research studies, which are helping to improve both our understanding of MND and future approaches to treatment. This research simply couldn’t happen without you!
With very best wishes for the Christmas period.
