Funding research

  • The Isle of Man branch Funding research Association visitors Study day
  • If we find ourselves with excess funds (sadly not a situation we find ourselves in too often!) we help fund specific research projects through the Motor Neurone Disease Association in the UK. Many people on the island don’t like locally raised funds to leave the Isle of Man, but in terms of research, there is simply no option.

    However, we do know which project we are helping to fund, and the money doesn’t just go into a big “pot” in England. In February this year, we were delighted to be able to give £25,000 towards a project based at the Walton Neurological Centre headed by Professor Carolyn Young; a consultant who coincidentally deals with patients visiting from the Isle of Man.
