OUR PATRON

 

Dr Neil Shah - Patron of The Daniel Courtney TrustWe are delighted that Dr. Neil Shah, Daniel's Consultant at Great Ormond Street Hospital, has agreed to be the patron and medical advisor to our Charity

I have been involved and working at Great Ormond Street Hospital since 1997. I have been a consultant for the last four years as a Paediatric Gastroenterologist. I am honoured to be asked to be a Patron and medical advisor of Making it Better - the Daniel Courtney Trust. I was the consultant in charge of Daniel Courtney from the very first few days of his life.

 

I have had a very long-standing interest in Microvillous Atrophy. I first encountered this condition as a junior doctor and also whilst undertaking research. This research, kindly sponsored by Action Medical Research, looked at the genetic causes of Microvillous Atrophy, with the aim of finding a future cure.

A great deal has been done but a great deal still needs to be done in this devastating condition. I am sure that with support, gene therapy as a cure is a very real possibility.
