MRC MBU scientists involved in new discovery in the fight against Motor Neurone Disease

A new target to fight Motor Neurone Disease (MND) using gene therapy has been uncovered by neuroscientists at the University of Sheffield, in collaboration with scientists in Cambridge, UCL and Ohio.

Alex Whitworth, leader of the MRC MBU's Mitochondrial Neurodegeneration research group, co-directed this research, which opens up a new field for potential therapies for the most common genetic cause of MND.

The research was funded by the MND Association.
