Mo Lecule, the MND Awareness meerkat – Mo is a lab coat wearing meerkat with a mission to raise awareness of MND. With his own Twitter account (@Mo_MND) and Facebook page. Emily Goodall has been surprised and delighted by the response to Mo Lecule, what started as a meerkat in a lab coat has snowballed into a large social media following. Mo has been involved at two national and two international conferences, met the Duke of Devonshire, made an appearance on BBC radio and still finds time to be in the lab doing experiments.
Emily’s hope is Mo will make the research we do in SITraN more accessible and help raise awareness.
