We were proud to welcome Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Gloucester GCV  to the Neuro 2023: The PSP & CBD International Research Symposium on Friday 20 October.

The Duchess of Gloucester, who attended in her role as the Royal Patron of PSPA, arrived at the Pan Pacific Hotel at 9.35am on 20 October, and was met by PSPA Chair Rowena Ironside and Professor Nigel Leigh.

During her visit, The Duchess met a range of professionals including Kristophe Diaz PhD from CurePSP, Professor Huw Morris, Dr Boyd Ghosh and Professor James Rowe.

The Duchess also sat in on a session to hear updates from Professor Morris about global research into PSP & CBD, with particular interest in the PROSPECT study.

Rebecca Packwood, PSPA Chief Executive Officer said: “It was an absolute honour to welcome The Duchess of Gloucester to this important gathering of international researchers and clinicians.

The symposium is an exciting bi-annual event which we organise in partnership with CurePSP to help update and inspire researchers and clinicians across the world. We hope, through these updates and collaborations we will progress research into PSP & CBD to help us create a better future for everyone affected.

The event has given us all a lot to think about as we strive to better understand the two conditions, work towards a treatment which could slow or even halt disease progression, and establish clear standards of care.”

The last PSP & CBD International Symposium was held in 2018.
