Background story:
LMR was established by Bruce Davies in 2012. Bruce Davies is a US and EU citizen with degrees from the University of the Witwatersrand (South Africa), Rhodes University (South Africa), and Middlesex University (London, United Kingdom).
In 1991 Davies founded Sterling Ultra Precision, which became the dominant supplier to the world of ultra-precision machine systems and lens design software for the production of Contact Lenses and Intra-Ocular Lenses (for implant after cataract surgeries). Sterling immediately enhanced machine precision over its best competitors by a factor of 10 to 30 times, doubling the price of machinery used for ophthalmic manufacturing. Sterling also successfully developed a series of fast-tool-servo attachments for the production of free-form optics (non-rotationally symmetrical optical surfaces), giving the company access to the electro-optics market as well as ophthalmic production, and a global market share in free-form optics > 95%
By 2009, when Davies was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, Sterling had its advanced machine systems working in lens manufacturing laboratories in 34 countries, and was trading in 45 countries. In 2010 Davies arranged to transfer control of Sterling to Ametek (NYSE symbol AME) and gradually withdrew from the company to devote time to finding out how to live with and eradicate Parkinson’s disease.
Over time it became clear that, not only was progress in fighting progressive neurological disease very slow, but that these diseases were extraordinarily complex. Davies concluded that the current approach of using “logical hit-and-miss” research may prove inadequate to crack the puzzle. His plan was therefore to move to what he likes to call a managed, data-driven, “logico-mathematically directed” strategy that connects scientific researchers directly with patient derived data through the internet. The result was LMR and the various “Club web-sites” it operates and is developing for selected progressive diseases. www.ClubPD.com (also known as www.ClubParkinson.com) is the first of these sites. In November 2012 Davies laid out some of his thoughts on Parkinson’s research in an essay entitled “HOW WE CAN COLLECTIVELY ENHANCE OUR ASSAULT ON PARKINSON’S DISEASE” You can access this 2012 essay by either going to www.ClubPD.com and selecting the PUBLIC RESOURCES tab at the top of the page … orCLICK HERE
