Our team

We are a team of doctors, clinicians, scientists and patients working to accelerate the search for a cure for MND. The UK MND Research Institute is co-directed by Professor Ammar Al-Chalabi of King’s College London and Professor Christopher McDermott of the University of Sheffield, supported by a leadership team which includes people living with MND.
