Funding boost for neurological conditions research at Anne Rowling Clinic

Sept 2019: J.K. Rowling has donated £15.3m to the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic at the University of Edinburgh.

The new donation will help improve the lives of people with multiple sclerosis (MS) and other neurological conditions, including motor neurone disease.

The Anne Rowling Clinic was set up following a previous donation from Ms Rowling in 2010, and is named in memory of her mother who died of MS, aged 45. It has established itself as an integrated care and research facility focusing on MS and other neurological conditions with the aim of bringing more clinical studies and trials to patients.

The Euan MacDonald Centre works very closely with the Anne Rowling Clinic. People with MND from the Lothians attend specialist clinics there, and it is also a hub for local, national and international clinical research studies on MND.
