The Ocean Globe Race 2023 is proud to support SITraN, the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience, as its charity of choice for this coming race.

SITraN, based at the University of Sheffield, England, is one of the world’s leading centres for research into Motor Neurone Disease, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease.

Opened in 2010 by Her Majesty The Queen, SITraN is an international centre of excellence, bringing together experts from a range of interconnected neurological disease areas into one team, in one location, to lead the fight against motor neuron disease and other common neurodegenerative disorders of the motor system.

It is an international centre of excellence for basic through to applied research in neurodegenerative disease, taking promising, emerging therapies from the lab, and translating them into practical treatments to be used in a hospital setting.

We are thrilled to be associated with this prestigious event. Your support and awareness raising will drive our research effort to a new level for the benefit of patients with neurological conditions. Donations enable us to develop exciting discoveries emerging from basic neuroscience research into experimental medicine studies aimed at developing new treatments and better outcomes for our patients. Thank you and good luck to all the skippers.

Dame Professor Pamela Shaw, Founding Director of SITraN
