UKIR Chapter

1st IFESS chapter: UK and Ireland

A big step forward for IFESS was the founding of the first National IFESS chapter. The Chapter represents the UK and the Republic of Ireland (UKRI) and has the specific objectives to not only support FES research, but to translate research into clinical practice and develop stronger collaboration between engineers, clinicians and especially neuroscientists. The Chapter was launched at the INS meeting in Cardiff UK in Nov 2008 and the following people have now been elected to the Board of Directors:

President: Dr Paul Taylor

Secretary: Christine Singleton

Treasurer: Prof Ken Hunt.

The following people were elected as Ordinary Board members:

Prof Nick Donaldson
Prof Jane Burridge
Dr Lawrence Kenny
Dr Anand Pandyan.

The first meeting of the UKRI Chapter will be in Birmingham on 20th March 2009 in conjunction with the FES User group meeting.
