Motor Neurone Disease

Motor neurone disease (MND) is a debilitating disease that strikes 400 Australians each year. Motor neurone disease often begins with a weakness of the muscles in the hands or feet and eventually leads to generalised paralysis, including the inability to speak or swallow. At the Florey, the motor neurone disease research group is investigating the events that lead to the disease with a view to blocking the disease’s progression.
