Motor neurone disease (MND) is an incurable disease, destroying the body’s cells which control movement causing progressive disability. Professor Dame Pamela Shaw, Professor of Neurology at the University of Sheffield, and her research team investigated why the progression of MND following onset of symptoms varies in speed, even in the presence of a known genetic cause of the condition.
In this lecture, Professor Shaw will share the findings from her research and look at the current scientific progressions in the fight against motor neurone disease.
Professor Dame Pamela Shaw graduated in Medicine with 1st Class Honours from the University of Newcastle in 1979. She undertook her MRCP and Specialist Neurology training in Newcastle.
In 1988 she was awarded an MD with commendation for her work on the neurological complications of coronary bypass surgery. After an intermediate fellowship award from the Wellcome Trust, she was awarded a Wellcome Senior Fellowship in Clinical Science which she held from 1991 -2000. In 1997 she was appointed Professor of Neurological Medicine at the University of Newcastle and in 2000 was appointed as Professor of Neurology at the University of Sheffield.
As an undergraduate in Newcastle she was awarded the Stephen Scott; Gibb; Mary Gordon; Mona McNaughton and Phillipson Prizes/Scholarships and achieved distinction in all undergraduate examinations.
