Tackling falls and fracture in Parkinson’s

Half of all women, and 20% of men, aged over 50 years will sustain a fracture in their remaining lifetime. However, people with Parkinson’s disease (PwP) are particularly predisposed towards excess fall and fracture risk and subsequent hospital admission. Read more

Development of iSupport-PD, a digital intervention for carers of people with Parkinson’s (RDF23/HLS/NMH/Hand)

Background. Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive neurological disorder that will affect 168,000 people in the UK by 2025. People with Parkinson’s have a vast array of motor symptoms (tremor, stiffness and slowness) and non-motor symptoms (such as depression and anxiety). Read more

MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Using vision as a window into Parkinson’s Disease

Whilst commonly considered to be a motor disorder, Parkinson’s Disease is also characterised by changes in vision. Using methods derived from human vision science, we have shown that mutations known to cause early onset Parkinson’s disease result in hyperexcitability in the Drosophila (fruit fly) visual system.

MSc by Research: Molecular mechanisms underlying Parkinson's disease

There is great need for improved understanding of the mechanistic biology underlying Parkinson’s disease. Such knowledge will help with development of new drugs that slow or even halt the progression of the disease. Read more

China Scholarship Council : Molecular mechanisms underlying Parkinson's disease

Understanding the Neurobiology of Parkinson's and related diseases

Background. The world-leading Parkinson's and Related Diseases Research Group based at the Brain and Mind Centre in the University of Sydney is providing an exciting opportunity for a PhD student scholarship. Read more

Precision Medicine DTP - Analysis of Parkinson’s speech patterns for digital biomarker discovery and intervention assessment

  Research Group: Centre for Medical Informatics
Additional Supervisor - Dr Angela C. Roberts [Western University, London Ontario Canada]. Background. Parkinson’s disease (PD) affects motor and cognitive abilities and leads to communication impairments that significantly impact on quality of life for patients and their caregivers. Read more

MSc by Research: Deciphering underlying pathways and impact on LRRK2 signalling network in hereditary Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a common neurodegenerative condition with no cure and complex aetiology. Around 5-10% a PD cases can be attributed to a monogenetic cause, including LRRK2, while for another ~ 10% of familial cases, the underlying genetic causes have yet to be identified. Read more

Everyday use of Voice Assisted Technology as a Facilitator of Speech Improvement for People with Parkinson’s Disease: A Health Technology Assessment

  Research Group: Nursing and Health
Most people diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease (PwPD) develop speech problems over time, and have difficulty making themselves heard and understood, due to low volume and unclear speech, leading to frustration. Read more

MSc by Research: Investigating mitochondrial autophagy mechanisms in Parkinson’s

Our lab has contributed to how two Parkinson’s disease-linked genes encoding the protein kinase, PINK1 and ubiquitin E3 ligase, Parkin, orchestrate a mitochondrial quality control pathway found in nearly every cell type including neurons. Read more

AI and Machine Learning for the diagnosis and monitoring of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease

The Department has long-standing research collaborations with hospitals and medical centres worldwide developing new approaches to the diagnosis and monitoring of neurological conditions, including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Read more

Cell-type dependent pharmacological regulation of cellular mitophagy for therapeutic application in Parkinson’s disease

The cellular quality-control process of mitophagy, entailing selective degradation of defective mitochondria (following damage to their DNA) by the process of autophagy, has attracted considerable research interest. Read more
