Trip to Tubingen

Had a very pleasant day talking to Dr Shushant Jain about his amazing robot, and gave a short seminar on LRRK2 to update everyone on our current research on LRRK2.


Parkinson’s UK visit to the University of Reading

DSC00027Today I played host to Parkinson’s UK, giving a short talk to members of the charity on some of the research I am doing funded by them. This include a brief introduction to Mendelian genetics, shown above, which I think most of them took on board! Very enjoyable question and answer session afterwards, with some excellent probing questions as usual. Thank you to Kate Pactor and Fatima Talidi-Marrero for organising the visit (and to Fatima for taking this photo!).
