Northern Ireland Motor Neurone Disease Biobank

This biobank aims to investigate the potential causes and mechanisms of neural degeneration in patients with Motor Neurone Disease (MND). We will do this by collecting blood and urine samples from patients with MND, some disorders with similar clinical characteristics (e.g Spinal-bulbar muscular atrophy) and healthy controls in Northern Ireland. Study participants may elect to provide optional muscle, skin and cerebrospinal fluid samples.

Existing samples:

  • Motor neuron disease (disorder)
