Queen opens new MND research centre

Her Majesty The Queen, accompanied by His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, has today officially opened the University of Sheffield’s new research centre into motor neurone disease (MND).

As part of a royal tour to the city of Sheffield, Her Majesty unveiled the university’s £12 million state-of-the-art Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN). Her Majesty also met with scientists, medical specialists and charity representatives who will dedicate their research to increasing our understanding of MND and other neurodegenerative conditions including Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and spinal muscular atrophy.

This new institute has doubled the amount of laboratory space currently dedicated to MND research in Sheffield.
