Amati Backstage

Anne Rowling Clinic

Amati Global Partners gives 10% of its profits distributed to its Members to charity, either through a donation or in the form of sponsorship, with the money being paid from Amati Global Investors Ltd. This is done by each Member choosing which charity they wish to support, with the amount given being in proportion to the percentage of the partnership that they own.

I have been supporting the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic since it opened in 2013 and this year I have decided to use my Amati charitable donation to organise an event at the Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh on 30 October 2015 in the hope that I will significantly increase the amount otherwise donated.

Neurological diseases represent one of the major public health threats in the industrialised world. These diseases include multiple sclerosis (MS), motor neurone disease (MND or ALS), Parkinson's disease (PD) and movement disorders, cognitive disorders and dementias, brain haemorrhage after stroke, Huntington's disease (HD) and fragile X syndrome.

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.

Behind the patient-clinician interface, laboratory-based and clinical research underpins the activities of the Anne Rowling Clinic. The research targets the discovery of treatments that will slow progression of neurodegenerative diseases. The ultimate goal is to repair the damage, so-called Regenerative Neurology.

I have first-hand experience of living with and caring for someone with Multiple Sclerosis. The staff at the Clinic are an extremely dedicated group of individuals and I firmly believe that the work that they are conducting at the MRC and the out-patient care that the Clinic offers is invaluable.

The Clinic aims to improve patients' lives through research: translating laboratory findings into clinical trials and ultimately, new therapies. All clinical activity is undertaken in partnership with the UK's National Health Service (NHS). Importantly, patients of the Anne Rowling Clinic have direct access to research projects and clinical trials.
