Activity: Consultancy typesContribution to the work of national or international committees and working groups

Description

I have recently set up a new collaborative research group following the launch of my new cognitive and behaviour screen for ALS, which I lead. The screen is copyrighted to myself and my colleague Dr Thomas Bak. The research group involves 3 UK MND Centres (Edinburgh, Oxford, King’s College London), as well as Centres from Holland, Belgium, Ireland, Italy, Switzerland and Germany, Portugal, Spain and Poland. Further centres include multicentre initiatives in Canada and the US. The screen has been translated into eight languages and has being adopted by the European Network for the Cure of ALS (ENCALS) as a European standard. It has also now been adopted by the SOPHIA project
