New Zealand MND Research in the Literature

As we look forward to new decade of advancements in MND research, we thought it would be interesting time to look back at how far we’ve come as a field.  We completed a thorough search of PubMed for articles published on MND by or about NZers in the last 30 years. Here is what we found!

It’s an exciting time for MND research in New Zealand. The field is changing rapidly, and with the help of our partners and supporters we’re making progress toward our goal of developing a globally connected and comprehensive national MND Research programme.  Please scroll down to read the latest updates from the NZ MND Research Network; view the list of published articles on MND by or about New Zealanders in the last 30 years and keep up to date with MND publications in the news.
