Jean-Pierre Sao-Ming Lin MbChB; MRCP (UK): PhD; FRCPCH, qualified in medicine in 1983 from Edinburgh University Medical School. After further training in general medicine, including adult neurology and paediatrics, he obtained an Edinburgh University George Guthrie Research Fellowship from 1990-4 leading to a PhD within the Department of Physiology at Edinburgh University studying ‘Motor Assessments in Cerebral Palsy’ supervised by Ewart Geoffrey Walsh, motor physiologist and John Keith Brown, paediatric neurologist, receiving the 1994 American Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine Richmond Paine Cerebral Palsy Award. In 1994 he became Senior Registrar in Paediatric Neurology at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, London before proceeding to his current permanent post in 1996 as Consultant Paediatric Neurologist at Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, initially as Clinical Director of the One Small Step Gait and Movement Laboratory 1997-99. Jean-Pierre Lin has lead the Complex Motor Disorders Service at the Evelina London Children’s Hospital since 2003. Clinical and research interests focus on movement disorders in children and the impact of environmental influences on activity-dependent synaptic plasticity underpinning brain & motor development including peripheral and central interactions within the nervous system of infants, children and young people with severe motor disability with a view to improving functional independence, notably through neuromodulation techniques such a deep brain stimulation (DBS). Jean-Pierre Lin is an Honorary Senior Lecturer and lead of the Children’s Neuromodulation Group, Women and Children’s Health Institute, King’s Health Partners, London and was President of the British Paediatric Neurology Association (BPNA) from 2016-18, BPNA Past President 2018-19 and is a former Chair of The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health College Specialty Advisory Committee for Paediatric Neurology (2017-18) and was Chair of the BPNA Movement Disorders Clinical Research Network (MDCRN) for more than 10 years. He also serves for a second four year term on the Board of the European Paediatric Neurology Society on the Scientific and Finance Committees. Jean-Pierre Lin has published widely within child neurology but in particular on motor physiology and pathophysiology. He recently edited a Special Edition of the European Journal of Paediatric Neurology on Advances in Neuromodulation in Children: http://www.ejpn-journal.com/issue/S1090-3798(16)X0007-4?mobileUi=0 Further publications may be found on: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=Jean-Pierre+Lin Jean-Pierre Lin is currently organising the 3rd EPNS International Advances in Neuromodulation in Children Symposium Athens 16-17.09.19: http://www.epns2019.org/assets/files/EPNS%202019%20PRE-CONGRESS%20SYMPOSIUM%20-%20Preliminary%20Programme%20-%20website.pdf
