Neurologist and Principal Investigator at the Donders Institute Bart van de Warrenburg has been appointed visiting professor at the UKM Medical Centre in Kuala Lumpur.

During an initial period of six months, he will share his specific expertise on ataxia and related disorders with the neurologists and neuroscientists at UKM campus, which has the ambition to be the national reference center for ataxia.

From October 15th to 17th, van de Warrenburg made his inaugural visit to UKMMC. Next to giving lectures and leading live and video-based patient demonstrations, he had fruitful interactions with UKM neuroscientists. Together with representatives from the Ministry of Health and from ngo’s, ways to improve diagnosis and management of Malaysian patients with ataxia were explored. The following months will be used to set up research collaborations.

The Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) was opened in 1970, and currently has a world ranking of 12 among the universities younger than 50 years.
