Medical Research Panel

Myositis UK’s medical, clinical and research panel provide an invaluable wealth of knowledge and advice.

About the panel

Myositis UK’s medical, clinical and research panel is made up of doctors and researchers actively involved in treating or researching myositis in the UK.

Some of these members will have, or have had, projects funded by Myositis UK.

Many of these experts attend Myositis UK’s annual conference to update members on their projects and answer questions.

Myositis UK may ask members of the medical, clinical and research panel to review research proposals they are not directly involved in.
