Eight years ago, Peter Schutzinger was diagnosed with the most brutal and devastating diagnosis – Motor Neuron Disease and was given only 2-3 years to live.  Having tried practically every drug and treatment that had the possibility of slowing, stopping or eliminating this terrible disease with no apparent success. This suggested that either the disease was not correctly diagnosed or wrong targets are being looked at. In fact, it seemed plausible for important questions to be asked with respect to to current research and clinical thinking surrounding the treatment and management of MND and other NDs.

This small, self-funded team took on the task of identifying the right datasets and projects for nothing less than a revolutionary breakthrough in the search for underlying genetic modalities in MND.

Thus began Iggy Get Out.
