Talk title: "Optimising nutritional support in ALS/MND"
The main drive of Prof McDermott’s research programme is developing the evidence base for delivering supportive and symptomatic care for patients living with motor neuron disease. He is chair of the NIHR UK MND Clinical Studies Group and is an experienced ALS clinical trialist.
“I was struck at an early stage in my career by the terrible suffering facing those living with ALS/MND. Since, I have been motivated not only to be part of the effort to understand the pathogenesis and trial new treatments but also ensure that care delivered to people living with MND is evidence based.
