The five-year Kenneth Snowman-MND Association lectureship is aimed to embed preclinical expertise in motor neurone disease (MND) models within SITraN as a national resource.

Our Director of Research Development at the Association, Dr Brian Dickie, commented: “We are delighted to be able to help secure the position of an outstanding young scientist at one of the top European centres for MND research.

“Our understanding of the causes of MND and the reasons why motor neurons degenerate is increasing rapidly and we need more researchers like Dr Mead who are ideally placed to move this new understanding from the laboratory to the clinic.”
