Four research projects totaling £50,000 will be funded by AMEND this year.
Thanks to some exceptional fundraising by members and supporters during 2014, a special one-off fund of £40,000 was available specifically for research into medullary thyroid cancer (MTC), the most common cause of death in MEN2. MTC also occurs alone and independently of MEN. Winners this year were Professor Neil McDonald (London), Professor Chris McCabe (Birmingham) and Laura Moss (Cardiff).
As usual, the annual award of £10,000 was available for projects to do with MEN as a whole. This year's winner was Dr Paul Newey (Dundee).
AMEND is delighted to be able to fund such a range of valuable research opportunities this year.
