FightMND Discovery Grants support projects focused on defining the underlying cause(s) of MND, and/or understanding the fundamental disease mechanisms that contribute to the progression of the disease in order to more effectively treat MND. Ultimately, outcomes should provide significant advancements in the understanding of MND, and substantially increase the likelihood of an acceleration in the development of more effective treatments or cure for MND.  

Discovery Grants aim to support collaborative projects that challenge and advance current paradigms, and/or significantly progress the way that research dedicated to discovering a cure for MND is conducted.  

FightMND Discovery Grants are offered between a value of AUD $250,000 to $1,000,000 with a project performance of up to 3 years.
