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, the MND Research Institute of Australia, will promote and fund the best research with the greatest chance of making MND treatable.

The 30th International Symposium on ALS/MND and affiliated meetings begins in Perth next week. Over 1,000 world-leading researchers and health professionals, as well as people living with MND and the wider MND community, will meet to discuss the latest developments in MND research and care. All share a common goal to move us closer to finding effective treatments and ultimately a cure.

This is the first time this international event has been held in Australia since 2011 and is co-hosted by MND Australia and MND Western Australia.
