University of Exeter Professor Marios Politis is leading a year-long study into the effects of motor neurone research, or ALS, in patients who are affected by it. 

According to a press release from the university, the study is being led by the University of Exeter’s world-leading Neurodegeneration Imaging Group. The research carried out will include cutting-edge PET and MRI scans in the London-based Invicro Imaging centre on the Hammersmith Hospital Campus. Researchers are aiming to identify and track the operations of disease in people living with ALS compared with healthy volunteers to evaluate molecular markers of ALS. 

When asked for comment by Exeposé, Prof. Politis said: “Our team is world-leading on cutting-edge brain imaging, which is helping us make great strides in understanding diseases such as MND […]. We need even more people, to help us understand the cause of the disease and help to track its progression over time.
