Dr Conor Kerley
In 2003 and after 3 major relapses in only 8 months, Conor was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at the age of 15. Up to that point Conor was a healthy athlete and student. Inspired by his own circumstances, Conor went on to receive his degree in human nutrition and dietetics from Trinity College in 2010. He commenced nutritional research studies at Connolly Hospital and the National Children’s Hospital and earned his doctorate from the School of Medicine and Medical Sciences at University College Dublin.
His research has been published in international peer-reviewed medical journals and has attracted over €210,000 in research funding to date. Now in 2020, Conor has set up his own nutrition products company, Phyatphix, based on his own research and expertise to provide evidence based yet convenient solutions to ill-health, including MS.
