Research Motor Neurone (RMN) is a charitable organisation based in Trinity College Dublin founded in 2007. The purpose of the Foundation is to support research in Motor Neurone Disease (MND), also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) undertaken by Trinity’s MND research group. RMN also strives to increase awareness of this incurable disease at both a national and international level.
MND research in Ireland is led by Orla Hardiman, Professor of Neurology at Trinity College Dublin and a world authority on MND and related neurodegeneration. Professor Hardiman is also the Health Service Executive (HSE) National Clinical Lead for Neurology. Ongoing research is needed to discover the cause, treatment and methods of improving quality of life for MND sufferers and their families.
The generous support from our donors helps us make progress in finding ways to help those who suffer from this debilitating condition. It is through the fundraising endeavours of all our sponsors that essential funds are raised to support RMN and our ongoing vital research. Thank you all for your kindness and continued support.
