This project aims to increase understanding of the role of microglia in Motor Neurone Disease (MND), which has been restricted to post-mortem tissue and animal models.

This project will explore new techniques for generating MND patient-derived microglia to rapidly expand our knowledge of neuroinflammatory processes in MND and allow patient-specific targeting of therapeutics.
