Genetics study

Dr Emma Scotter (Centre for Brain Research, The University of Auckland), Dr Richard Roxburgh (Neurogenetics Clinic, Auckland City Hospital), and collaborators are now recruiting for a study of the genetics of motor neurone disease in New Zealand.

They invite people with MND (familial or sporadic, total 300 people) and people without MND (total 30 people) to participate.

The purpose of the study is to understand the genetic causes of MND in New Zealanders. In addition, the study aims to test how certain MND gene mutations affect human cells.
