Queen opens motor neurone disease research centre

The Queen is to open the UK's first purpose built research institute for Motor Neurone Disease in Sheffield.

The disease, which has no known cure, kills more than 1000 people every year.

The Sheffield Institute will also study other degenerative conditions such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and Multiple Sclerosis.
