KD-UK Funded Research at UCL Institute of Neurology
At UCL Institute of Neurology, we have a team of researchers who are investigating KD, undertaking both laboratory based research projects as well as clinical studies on patients. With our partner hospital, The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, we have established the first and only dedicated KD Clinic in the UK, lead by consultant neurologist, Dr Pietro Fratta. This team of clinical and basic scientists, specialised in KD, is unique in the UK.
Money raised by KD-UK is supporting a number of laboratory and clinical research projects currently undertaken by the UCL KD team. This support is critically important for this research, as there is no other dedicated charity funding for KD research. The projects currently supported by KD-UK are described below:
