Research interests

Dr Dale is a paediatric neurologist. His clinical interests are brain inflammation syndromes including such as acute disseminated encephalomyelitis and multiple sclerosis; post-infectious movement disorders such as Sydenham's chorea, PANDAS and encephalitis lethargica; and childhood movement disorders including Tourette syndrome.

His laboratory interests are acute onset brain inflammation and brain autoimmunity, including: the role of novel autoantibodies in post-infectious movement disorders and behavioural syndromes; the immunological differences between monophasic brain demyelination syndromes such as acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM;) and chronic relapsing demyelination such as multiple sclerosis.
