Dr. Lawrence Korngut is a neurologist, clinical neurophysiologist and former Director of the Calgary Neuromuscular Program and the Calgary ALS and Motor Neuron Disease Clinic. His research includes phase II and III clinical trials of new therapies for neuromuscular conditions. He is the National Principal Investigator of the Canadian Neuromuscular Disease Registry that now includes 48 participating clinics and over the past ten years has recruited over 5500 patients.
Dr. Korngut completed his undergraduate degree in Life Sciences at Queen’s University (Kingston, Canada), medical school and neurology residency at Western University (London, Canada), neuromuscular clinical and research fellowship and Masters of Science in Clinical Epidemiology at the University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He serves as the Director of Innovation and Commercialization at the Hotchkiss Brain Institute.
Within NMD4C Dr. Korngut will bring in his experience of Canadian networking in CAN-NMD and participates in the network’s work in trial capacity building.
