Dr Don Mahad
Dr Mahad is a Senior Clinical Lecturer and Honorary Consultant Neurologist at the University of Edinburgh’s Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic.
Don’s research is into bioenergetic changes in progressive multiple sclerosis patients as well as experimental disease modes, in particular the role of mitochondria. Furthermore, his research group explores the potential consequences of mitochondrial dysfunction and energy failure for the clinical presentation of progressive MS.
Don spends 80 percent of his time on research and 20 percent on clinical care (general neurology and multiple sclerosis) as a consultant neurologist. He has developed expertise in the diagnosis, treatment and symptomatic management of MS patients through the MS clinical care physician fellowship awarded by National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
