Ian Davis is a 38 year old retired doctor living in Melbourne, Australia. On the 13th of September 2011 Ian was diagnosed with MND. Prior to his diagnosis, he worked in Haematology practice at Melbourne’s Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. His background training includes a Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Hons) at Monash University, Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Hons) from the University of Melbourne, and a Bachelor of Medicine & Surgery (BMBS Hons) from Flinders University.
In late 2014 Ian founded the Cure For MND Foundation in order to pursue his passion for seeing MND awareness grow, and to see vital funding for research increase in the hopes of finding effective treatments for those diagnosed in the future. He takes a lead role in operational aspects of the foundation’s day-to-day running, and heads up the Board’s research and clinical trials portfolio.
