The Department funds research through the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR). The NIHR welcomes funding applications for research into any aspect of human health, including research into treatments for motor neurone disease (MND). NIHR does not ring-fence funds for expenditure on particular topics. In all disease areas, the amount of NIHR funding depends on the volume and quality of scientific activity.

The Department, via the NIHR is not providing funding to the Brighton and Sussex Medical School to develop a treatment for MND.
