Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic
The Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic is a charitable University of Edinburgh research facility focusing on a wide range of neurological conditions, especially neurodegenerative diseases.
Neurodegenerative disease is an umbrella term covering a range of conditions that primarily affect
cells in the nervous system called neurons. These cells normally can’t reproduce or replace themselves, so when they become damaged or die, patients can develop a wide range of symptoms including problems with moving, sensation, breathing, speaking, swallowing, learning and memory.
More than 20 million people worldwide are diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disease each
year. These diseases include, but are not limited to, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and motor neurone disease.
Currently all of these conditions are progressive and incurable. We aim to improve patients' lives through research: translating laboratory findings into clinical trials and ultimately, new therapies.
