The Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic

A message from Clinic Directors Siddharthan Chandran and Charles ffrench-Constant

Professor Siddharthan Chandran and Professor Charles ffrench-Constant
The Anne Rowling Clinic has now been open for just over 6 months, and we are delighted to report that it is a hive of activity. We are seeing approximately 250 patients every month in specialist research clinics that include multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease and early-onset cognitive disorder. This will grow as we begin to host specialist clinics for fragile X syndrome, Huntington’s disease and genetics. We held a very successful scientific launch symposium at the end of May, entitled “The Clinical Science of Regenerative Neurology”. The fourteen talks and numerous posters were a tour-de-force of the very latest in regenerative neurology from the best researchers world-wide and served to inspire the 300 delegates as well as build our national and international collaborations. The importance of these links is evidenced by our recent announcement of the MS-SMART clinical trial, with University College London (more details below). Other research is also thriving: we now have a functional room in the Clinic for voice-banking, and our laboratory scientists have published their findings in top journals.
Many thanks for your support of the Anne Rowling Clinic. We would like to wish you a very enjoyable summer.
