Who are we?
The New Zealand Motor Neuron Disease Research Network was created in 2017 to facilitate the interaction between MND biomedical and clinical researchers, allied health professionals and other researchers who will have an impact on MND in New Zealand. Research networks have been shown to accelerate and broaden research in the topic of focus, and we hope that this increased interaction will encourage new MND research. This website has been created to provide a centralised location informing others of all MND research in New Zealand.
Funding for this has been provided by MND New Zealand who, as a community based patient support organisation, have a very real interest in the network’s success. We are very grateful for their support which allows us to provide this information to you.
What can you find on our site?
If you are a researcher or student looking to pursue research in the field of MND in New Zealand, we provide an overview of what is happening in this community and contacts to help you get connected. You will also find tools and resources that may help you advance your own research, including funding sources, patient registries, and tissue banks. Check out Research, Resources and Opportunities for more information.
Contact us if you would like to have your research profiled, have an opportunity to share, or have any questions about the network.
