Thank you to all who joined us for the 2016 Alliance Meeting in Dublin, Ireland.
110 members and friends attended the 24th Annual Meeting on 4-5 December. Those are record numbers! We had attendees from 30 countries worldwide.
We want to give special thanks to our 2016 host association, the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association, and to our platinum sponsor Cytokinetics. We also appreciate the efforts of the Alliance Meeting Programme Committee, who selected this year’s abstracts.
The Alliance was proud to award 5 travel grants to members in need from Mongolia, Malaysia, India and Cuba. These members, who otherwise would not have been able to afford attendance, received £1000 to fund their travel and accommodation in Dublin, where they were able to exchange information and resources with our global network.
During the Alliance Meeting, we enjoyed presentations from 17 member associations representing 13 countries. We were also fortunate to hear from Dr. David Taylor, the Director of Research for ALS Canada, who gave an excellent overview of the ALS/MND research landscape.
Even if you weren’t able to be with us in Dublin, you can watch video of the Alliance Meeting online. We have recorded and archived all the presentations from the 24th Annual Meeting. View the archive page here.
Together, we are united in the worldwide fight against ALS/MND!
