Fight Motor Neurone Disease - Screening Program

Earlier this year, FightMND announced its support, together with the Victorian State Government and the Balcon Group Pty Ltd, for a world-first MND Drug Screening Program using MND patients own stem cells and motor neurones grown from a simple skin biopsy. The Program is an initiative of the Motor Neurone Disease Laboratory at The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health in Melbourne.

The Florey is now pleased to announce a call for volunteers for the first intake of people with MND to contribute to the FightMND Drug Screening Program.

All Australian residents diagnosed with MND who are willing to donate a skin and blood sample are invited to register.

Partners and family members of MND patients are also welcome to donate samples to this Program as controls.
