I am currently a consultant Neurologist at the Institute of Neurosciences in Glasgow and I have a particular interest in Motor Neurone Disease (MND). I lead the MND neurological service in Glasgow. I have a basic science (M.A. Medical Sciences Cambridge, Ph.D. Cell Biology University College London and Post Doctoral Fellowship at Northwestern University, Chicago) and clinical background MBChB Edinburgh, FRCP (Glasgow). I continue to be actively involved in research on the care, treatment and cause of Motor Neurone Disease/ALS. I am also a serving trustee of MND Scotland.
