Working to defeat MND

Motor Neurone Disease Australia is the national voice representing all Australians who share the vision of a world without MND.

Drawing on 35 years of experience, MND Australia works with a national network of State MND Associations to advocate, educate and raise awareness. Our goal is to empower Australians impacted by MND to live better for longer.

Until there is a cure, MND Australia’s research arm, MND Research Australia, will promote and fund the best research with the greatest chance of making MND treatable.

PhD top up grants encourage promising early career researchers to focus their talents on developing cures, treatments and better models of care for people living with motor neurone disease. This year, we are delighted to award these in the areas of genomics (Natalie Grima) and care research (Anna Ridgers).
