“SMi: Why are you attending this conference?

D.L.: We need to get the message out on how important it is to do trials for paediatric diseases. Treating Alzheimer’s disease may improve life for patients for the last few (non-productive) years of their life but intervening in paediatric refractory epilepsy has the potential of making a difference for 60-70 years of life.”

The interview will cover Deborah’s current role; challenges in the field; the main issues in paediatric clinical trials and much more. To download the full interview please visit the downloads tab at
