The Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic at the University of Edinburgh, is named after J.K. Rowling’s mother, who died in 1990 from complications related to Multiple Sclerosis.
More than 20 million people worldwide are diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disease each year. At present, all of these disorders are progressive and incurable. There is a need for research that will lead to new therapies. The Clinic seeks to tackle this need through its patient-based clinical research into Regenerative Neurology – targeting the discovery of treatments that will slow progression of neurodegenerative diseases, including MS, with the ultimate ambition of repairing damage. The Clinic also offers outpatient care for people with neurological conditions.
