Edinburgh, Sep 12 (TIWN) "Harry Potter" author JK Rowling has donated 15.3 million pounds ($18 million) to support research into multiple sclerosis (MS) and neurological conditions at a centre here named after her mother.

The Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic at the University of Edinburgh was established with a £10m donation from the Harry Potter author in 2010.  Her latest gift will help create new facilities and support research.  Anne Rowling died aged 45 from complications related to multiple sclerosis (MS).  The centre is an integrated care and research facility focusing on MS and neurological conditions with the aim of bringing more clinical studies and trials to patients.  Neurological conditions studied at the clinic include motor neurone disease (MND), Parkinson's and dementias.
