In July, Claire will be running 100km in the excruciating race to the stones to raise money for MND research.
3 years ago she began working as a research scientist in The Patani Lab to investigate the underlying causes of MND, hoping her research would be able to guide future treatments for this disease. Claire has witnessed the devastating impact that MND has – those affected are rapidly stripped of the ability to do all the tasks we take for granted every day, such as walking, playing sports, eating. She has also seen, and been part of, the huge progression in research behind MND.
Therefore she is raising money for the MNDa (http://www.mndassociation.org) to support those affected by MND and groundbreaking research so that in the future we will have earlier and more accurate diagnosis, increased awareness and one day a cure for MND.
