Getting Involved

SGroup photo 2016MND RAG has members from a variety of backgrounds, united by the common goal of fighting MND.

Full Membership: Full members are invited to attend quarterly face to face meetings and will get monthly updates via email or letter about group activities. There is also the facility to join meetings by video-call if the individual is unable to attend meetings in person.

Associate Membership: A new initiative is associate membership which allows people to join SMND RAG entirely remotely without the need for travel to Sheffield for our quarterly meetings. All you need is access to email and an enthusiasm to get involved.

We always welcome new members so if you would like to find out more please email: smndrag@sheffield.ac.uk

Next Meeting

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, our face-to-face meetings have been replaced by virtual meetings (video-call). This gives us increased flexibility of arranging ad-hoc meetings when researchers have projects to discuss with the group.

Meet the Researcher

Your chance to get to know MND researchers a little better: our Meet the Researcher section includes interviews with SITraN scientists and clinicians.
