“Everyone you will ever meet knows something you dont”.

I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel to different countries, sometimes alone, sometimes with colleagues. I have met some remarkable people – clinicians, scientists, voluntary organisations, and above all, patients and their families. It has been a humbling experience to witness their courage, their hope, their struggles, and, more often than not, their successes.

I am also very grateful to colleagues who have given up their valuable time to accompany me on these visits; their presence has immeasurably enriched the experience.

I have had a lifelong interest in lysosomal storage disorders. Having recently retired I now have time to pursue my passion for teaching and training of young doctors and scientists, and hopefully instil in them the passion for their patients that is so integral to working in this field.
