Many congratulations to Euan MacDonald Centre member Dr Arpan Mehta on winning the Best Talk award at this year's CURE-ND (Catalysing a United Response in Europe to Neurodegenerative Diseases) Clinical Workshop in Paris.

This year's workshop focused on digital assessments and digital biomarkers, preventative trials for genetic diseases and clinical trial platforms. Arpan's presentation centred on the challenges and delivery of the multi-armed, adaptive design of the Euan MacDonald Centre-led clinical trial, MND-SMART.
