Clinic puts patients at heart of multiple sclerosis research
Date:8/31/2010

cells, which send messages from the brain to other parts of the body, becoming damaged.

This can cause symptoms such as numbness, visual loss, fatigue, dizziness and weakness that lead to accumulating disability.

As with other neurological disorders, once the nerve cells are damaged they are not replaced causing the condition to progressively worsen.

Siddharthan Chandran, Professor of Neurology and co-director of the Centre for Multiple Sclerosis Research, said: "Multiple sclerosis has many features in common with other neurodegenerative disorders. As a result any discoveries from the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic will help us advance our understanding and treatment of all these related neurological diseases. Finding ways to slow progression of these conditions will make an enormous difference to patients' lives."

The donation is part of the Edinburgh Campaign, which aims to raise 350 million for initiatives across the University. This includes creating new hubs of learning, conserving iconic University buildings, furthering research and increasing the number of scholarships and bursaries available for students.
