About Explorathon: Café Scientifique - Motorneurone Disease

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is known as a rapidly progressive neurodegenerative condition however the disease course is highly variable and difficult to predict. As an exceptional example Professor Stephen Hawking survived for more than 50 years with the condition. Such clinical variation and a limited understanding of the disease basis presents a major challenge to the development and trialling of urgently needed targeted treatments. Dr Liz Elliott is studying the pathology of MND to investigate differences between disease subgroups at a cellular level and gain understanding in to the underlying disease causative mechanisms. Dr Elliott is studying her PhD in Motor Neurone Disease (MND) at the University of Edinburgh. During her medical training she has developed a particular interest in muscle wasting conditions and translational medicine; completing an undergraduate degree in Clinical Genetics at King’s College London before working as a researcher in neuromuscular diseases at the John Walton Muscular Dystrophy Research Centre, Newcastle and the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic, Edinburgh.
