James Parkinson Memorial day


Enjoying a fascinating series of lectures here at the Royal London Hospital marking the bicentenary of the publication of James Parkinson’s Essay on the Shaking Palsy. My contribution was a brief summary of his political writings, with the talk on the link below.


Prasannakumar Deshpande thesis defence


I was delighted to visit Turku over in Finland last week to act as opponent for Prasannakumar Deshpande as he defended his PhD thesis, focused around LRRK2. Prasannakumar provided an excellent defence of his work, and I was able to recommend that he be awarded his PhD – so many congratulations.
