Research Biography

Rebecca Francis is a speech pathologist, PhD Candidate and Associate Lecturer at Flinders University, South Australia. 

Rebecca’s PhD research project will investigate how the mild-moderate cognitive impairment associated with Motor Neuron Disease impacts on swallowing function over the course of MND progression. She will employ high resolution impedance manometry to instrumentally assess swallowing function in MND, as well as qualitatively investigate how these changes impact on the quality of life for people with MND, their carers and families.
