PDS awards Training Fellowship to Institute of Neurology researcher to understand how the brain controls Parkinson’s symptoms
18 June 2009
The Parkinson’s Disease
Society (PDS) has awarded a Training Fellowship for just over £170,000 to Dr
Ashwani Jha (Sobell Department of
Motor Neuroscience and Movement Disorders) to investigate what parts of the
brain is associated with specific symptoms of Parkinson’s.
One of the important challenges for the future of Parkinson’s treatment is to tailor drugs and therapies for each individual with the condition. No two people with Parkinson's will have exactly the same symptoms, but we still don’t know the reason for this and what is the best way to optimise the treatment.
Dr Kieran Breen, Director of Research and Development at the Parkinson's Disease Society, comments:
"The PDS is delighted to be funding Dr Jha's study.
"We know that the symptoms of Parkinson's, such as tremors and slowness of
movement, can make life very difficult for people with the condition.
"This exciting new research will provide us with an insight of why these symptoms may occur and help us to develop new treatments to overcome them."
