Welcome & Invitation to Attend

The MJD Foundation hosted the International MJD Conference in Cairns, Australia, from 28th to the 29th August 2015. The conference theme of “excellence in research - a world of hope” brought together people from around the world-scientists, health care professionals, and families - to share experience and knowledge of Machado Joseph Disease.

About MJD and the MJD Foundation

Machado Joseph Disease is a hereditary neuro degenerative condition.  It results in damage to the cerebellum that initially causes muscular weakness and progresses over time to a total lack of voluntary control and very significant permanent physical disability.  There is no known cure, yet. The MJD Foundation seeks to provide a better quality of life for Indigenous Australians and their families living with Machado Joseph Disease in Arnhem Land and beyond.
