We Want Your Blood

YOUR BLOOD COULD HELP CURE MOTOR NEURONE DISEASE

There’s an exciting new project afoot in Science Gallery Dublin that allows you to contribute to potentially lifesaving research on Motor Neurone Disease (MND), a neuromuscular condition that attacks the nerves in the spinal cord and brain. In 90% of MND cases, there is no known cause. This is where you come in.

We’re looking for volunteers to donate just 10mls (or two teaspoons) of blood. This will contribute to a ‘biobank’ of DNA samples that can then be carefully studied by Trinity College Dublin to hopefully find a cause – and ultimately a cure – for MND. For more info please see the Science Gallery Website or email ireland@projectmine.com
