Currently Channa is a neuromuscular specialist neurologist at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust (STHFT) and is the co chair of the South Yorkshire and Humber regional neuromuscular network.  He also has a sub specialist interest in neurological Sleep Disorders and shares a regional sleep clinic. HIs research interests are MND, Neurogenetics, Hereditary spastic paraparesis, ataxia, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis and neuropathy (small fiber neuropathy). He is active in both clinical and basic science research. Channa has number of publications in high impact factor journals. In addition Channa is the audit lead to the department of neurology and has pioneered the use of structured judgment of mortality cases to learn lessons from deaths to improve care and safety of patients.

Dr Paling is a consultant neurologist at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield. His neurological training was in Queen Square, London where he obtained a PhD in MS research with Raj Kappoor and David Miller, Manchester and Sydney. His clinical interests are in multiple sclerosis, and he is particularly interested in trials of MS and is a principle investigator for trials of new disease modifying therapies in MS.  Other interests include medical education where he is strategic director for the UK MS Academy, and in service development. He is the clinical lead of the Multiple Sclerosis Centre Sheffield.
