Pamela Macdonald

Stakeholder Engagement Manager
Department of Clinical Brain Sciences, University of Edinburgh

Broadly summarised as external engagement with our important patient, public and donor stakeholders. Pam's role covers communications (through mailboxes, websites, social media, newsletters), events, tours and other public engagement for MND-SMART, the Euan MacDonald Centre, Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic and the MS Society Edinburgh MS Research Centre. She is also lead on the development of a programme of engagement with our local community.

Pam has been part of the team since 2013 and has held various roles including administration, oversight of research grant finances for the Anne Rowling Clinic, along with a supportive role for the Clinic's staff resources. She has helped in the background for the MND-SMART management team, assisting with various external engagement initiatives.

In her spare time, Pam likes to regularly go to her local gym and walk in the beautiful Scottish Borders. An avid reader, her perfect afternoon would be with some background music (Grateful Dead or Nina Simone) and a good book, with Stefan Zweig being among her favourites. Keeping abreast of current affairs and world politics she finds is useful if not always enjoyable!
