Ming Lim undertook his undergraduate medical training at University Nottingham, UK. Following completing his paediatric neurology training in South London, he began his doctoral research in the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (London) with the award of a Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health Research Training Fellowship. He was appointed as Consultant Paediatric Neurologist at the Evelina London Children’s Hospital and is Professor of Paediatric Neurology. He is currently the Head of Children’s Neuroscience; Evelina R&D Lead and Associate Director of the GSTT NIHR Clinical Research Facility.

He set up the Children's Neuroscience Department Brain and Spine Inflammation Service with a highly successful research portfolio; leading and participating in multi-centre/multi-national investigator-led studies; contributing to industry-led studies; and collaborating in basic studies investigating the role of inflammation in neurodegeneration and immunobiology of antibody-mediated central nervous system disorders. Ming Lim, within his full time NHS post, has generated a substantial grant income and published comprehensively on childhood neuroinflammation (200+ total publication; H-index 51).

His work has contributed to important characterisation and understanding of many childhood inflammatory disorders and his team is credited in leading clinical and research programs which now seek to optimise the management of severe childhood neuroinflammatory disorders. The service infrastructure and collaborative national and international networks also provide crucial clinical and research training in paediatric neuroinflammation.
