Consultant in Neuromuscular Disorders/ Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer
I have been a consultant in Neuromuscular disease since 1995, and have worked at Queen Square since 2008. I am the clinical lead for the neuromuscular complex care centre and have over 100 adult Duchenne patients under my care.
I was a PI for the phase 2b randomised controlled trial of Ataluren in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and am currently a PI for the Sideros study which is evaluating the effect of idebenone in corticosteroid treated DMD patients. I am the lead for the adult North Star Network which is establishing a national database for adults with DMD to understand the natural history of this patient population. I am joint co-ordinating editor for the Cochrane Neuromuscular disease Group.
