DrK (Klaus Schmierer PhD FRCP)
Multiple sclerosis has been DrK's clinical and research focus from the beginning of his training in neurology at the Charité Hospital (Humboldt University), which followed undergraduate studies in Berlin and Jerusalem. In 2001 he moved to London to pursue a career in academic neurology, initially as a Research Fellow, and from 2005 as a Wellcome Intermediate Clinical Fellow at the UCL Institute of Neurology, and a Consultant Neurologist (Hon) at The National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery, Queen Square. Here, he investigated the histo-pathological correlates of quantitative MRI using standard and high-field MR systems to improve disease monitoring in people with MS. Following appointment in 2009 at Queen Mary, where he is a Reader in Clinical Neurology, his clinical-academic work now includes (i) quantifying the pathological substrate of disease deterioration in pwMS using MRI and quantitative histology; (ii) further developing the BartsMS Database (the MS Trust's QuDos runner up 2015!); (iii) in vivo MRI studies to improve the early diagnosis of MS, and (iv) investigator-led and commercial clinical trials.  DrK considers Cladribine the best
currently available 'allround drug' for people with MS.
