UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology


Dr John Morgan-Hughes

10 August 2012

It was with great sadness that we learned of the death of Dr John Morgan-Hughes.

John retired in 1997, after some thirty years at Queen Square during which he helped establish a major UK diagnostic and research muscle laboratory and also a world-class mitochondrial research group.  He received a lifetime achievement award from the World Federation of Neurology in 2002, and the ABN Medal in 2008 for distinguished contributions to neurology.  He died suddenly on Thursday, 2nd August.

John will be remembered with fondness by all at Queen Square who knew him, particularly for his enthusiasm, wise counsel and good humour.
