Partnership formed to tackle motor neurone disease
19 November 2013
Joost, who has MND, visited with representatives of his J9 Foundation. He toured the labs, chatted with Euan MacDonald and his family, and met members of the University's rugby club at a press conference.
In the evening, there was a highly successful fundraising quiz, Joost a Sports Quiz, at Murrayfield Stadium.
The visit will foster partnerships on MND research between Scotland and South Africa.
Solving the enormous challenge of MND or ALS requires partnership and collaboration. We are delighted to work with South African colleagues and the J9 foundation to promote better understanding of this devastating disease.
