The Neuroscience Support Group At The Queens Medical Centre
Who we are
Our focus is on medical research relating to neurodegenerative diseases and providing ancillary funding for it at the Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham. These diseases, which include Alzheimer’s disease, other forms of dementia, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Motor Neurone Disease, have a devastating impact on the lives of those who suffer from them, their families and their carers. It is estimated that over 1 million people in the UK suffer from these diseases and over 54 million worldwide. The money which we raise helps to fund urgent equipment replacement, consumables, brain tissue transport, public awareness events and, perhaps most important of all, scholarships that enable the brightest of young scientists at the start of their careers to become involved in this vital world class area of research. Thank you for your contribution.
