Brief description Motor neuron disease (MND) is an adult-onset, rapidly progressive neurodegenerative disorder that leads to paralysis and death, typically within 2 to 5 years of first symptoms. More than 85% of cases do not harbour known MND mutations. This proposal exploits genome-wide genetic and epigenetic profiling methods and leverages across multiple existing genomic resources to discover genes and functional pathways that contribute to MND pathogenesis and progression.
