David Hilton-Jones qualified in medicine from Cambridge University and trained in Neurology in Oxford, London and Montreal. His abiding interest in neuromuscular disorders was initially triggered by working with John Morgan-Hughes (Queen Square) and cemented by working with George Karpati in Montreal. He runs a multidisciplinary team providing a clinical service for patients with neuromuscular disorders. His specific interest in myasthenia gravis resulted from his collaboration with John Newsom-Davis in Oxford, from whom he took over management of the Oxford Myasthenia Centre.
Major contributions in clinical research relating to myotonic dystrophy and inclusion body myositis. Extensive international collaborations with research laboratories relating to gene identification. Major neuromuscular teaching commitments to World Muscle Sociery, British Myology Society, and European Academy of Neurology
