Research Interests

The main drive of Professor McDermott’s research programme is developing the evidence base for delivering supportive and symptomatic care for patients living with motor neuron disease.

He is also interested in studying mechanisms of neurodegeneration, in order to develop treatments for patients with motor neuron disease and hereditary spastic paraplegia.
