Flinders’ Professor Tracey Wade and researcher Dr Mary-Louise Rogers will take the Ice Bucket Challenge tomorrow (Friday 23 March) in support of those affected by Motor Neurone Disease and their families, and to raise money to research new treatments.
Dr Rogers made global headlines last month after funding from past Ice Bucket Challenges allowed her to develop a new test that detects progression of MND faster and easier than ever before – a development that could massively speed up the search for a cure.
Professor Wade will be soaked by Flinders Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research), Professor Robert Saint, while Dr Rogers will be soaked by SAHMRI researcher Dr Ian Johnson.
Professor Saint (above right) took the Challenge for Flinders in 2015, while in 2014, dozens of staff and students took part in a MASS Ice Bucket Challenge at Bedford Park (above left).
