​“As our population ages, the number of cases of neurodegenerative diseases is expected to rise.   The treatments for neurodegenerative diseases are still very limited.   I often find it very difficult to tell patients and their families that there is no cure for the disease.

Nevertheless, there are many things that can be done to improve a patient’s quality of life. We shall remain positive and exude the spirit of never giving up hope.”
