Department of Clinical Neuroscience

Head of Department: Professor Anthony Schapira DSc MD FRCP FMedSci

The primary area of our research  is the investigation of the aetiology and pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders. Specifically the department, which is based at the Royal Free Campus in Hampstead, has an interest in the genetics and biochemistry of Parkinson’s disease, frontotemporal dementia and progressive supranuclear palsy .  The department has established an international reputation in this area and in the area of diseases of the mitochondrial respiratory chain and inborn errors of mitochondrial function. There are also extensive research programmes on the genetics and pathogenesis of dystonia, motor neurone disease and peripheral nerve disorders.
