Our projects are based at The Royal Brisbane & Women’s Hospital, The Wesley Hospital, The University of Queensland, and multiple national and international sites (hyperlinked to lab members). Our projects are funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council, the Motor Neurone Disease Research Institute of Australia, the Royal Brisbane & Women’s Hospital Foundation, Wesley Medical Research, The MND and Me Foundation, and The University of Queensland.

Given that no two MND patients are the same, the projects within our MEND research program are focussed towards gaining insights that will form the basis upon which we can develop metabolically-directed therapeutic strategies that are personalised to match the precise metabolic needs of individual MND patients.

Our projects are built on a diverse, collaborative and strong translational, transdisciplinary, and multidisciplinary research foundation. MEND spans the disciplines of neurology, neuroscience, pharmacology, endocrinology and metabolism, physiology, healthy ageing, genetics, and stem cell biology.
