This short course offered by the world leading UCL Institute of Neurology in Queen Square gives an introduction to anatomy and development of motoneurons and neuromuscular junctions, the development of different motoneuron types leading to differences in their physiology and functional characteristics. The course also gives an overview of the most important diseases that affect either the neuromuscular junction or motor neurons and lead to diseases affecting the motor system as a whole, including motoneuron disease (MND), Spinobulbar Muscular Atrophy (SBMA) and rare diseases of the neuromuscular junction, such as Myasthenia Gravis. Lectures are delivered by world leading experts in the field of Neuromuscular Diseases.

Examples of lecture topics in the Motor Neurons Diseases and Diseases of Neuromuscular Junctions module:

  • Genetics of motor neuron diseases  
  • Therapeutic strategies for the treatment of MND- masterclass 
  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy 
  • Myasthenia Gravis 
  • Acquired diseases of the neuromuscular junction 
  • Setting up clinical trials in motoneurons diseases

There are 2 options: as a Short course for CPD, attending lectures, after which we will issue a Certificate of attendance; or as a Taster course that includes attendance to lectures, completion of coursework and final examination. Participants of our taster course can use their exam results towards a postgraduate qualification in Neuromuscular diseases at UCL if they decide to enrol on the MSc/PGDip/PGCert Neuromuscular Disease course at a later date (within 5 years).
