Consultant Neurologist, National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London

Nik Sharma qualified from the University of Liverpool and was awarded a PhD by the University of Cambridge.  After Cambridge, he was awarded an NRSA fellowship to work at the National Institute of Health (NIH), Bethesda, USA.


His lab at UCL combines different techniques and approaches to understand neurodegeneration and neuroplasticity of the motor system in ‘real world’ people living with motor neuron disease (thesharmalab.com). More recently the lab has begun to explore the link between the  gut microbiome and the microglia and is carrying out the first trial of a faecal microbiome transplant (FMT) in people living with MND (BIOMAX-ALS).
