Laura Silveira-Moriyama
Dr Laura Silveira Moriyama graduated and trained in Neurology at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of São Paulo, Brazil. She was a Movement Disorders fellow of Prof Egberto Barbosa until 2004, when she moved to London in order to work as a Clinical Research Fellow at the Reta Lila Weston Institute of Neurological Studies. In 2009 she completed a PhD under Professor Andrew Lees' supervision on the subject of the smell sense in Parkinson’s disease and published a series of articles demonstrating that smell tests could be helpful in the differential diagnosis of parkinsonism and tremor, and that olfaction was impaired in various clinical manifestations of Lewy body disorders including pure autonomic failure and LRRK2 gene mutation carriers who present with parkinsonism. Currently she is a postgraduate fellow in Movement Disorders at the Reta Lila Weston Institute of Neurological Studies and continues to work with Professor Andrew Lees teaming up with various international collaborators including Prof Werner Poewe from Innsbruck, Austria; Dr Donald Grosset from Glasgow, UK; Prof Niall Quinn, Prof Kailash Bhatia and Prof Christopher Mathias from London, UK; Prof Egberto Barbosa from Sao Paulo, Brazil; Professor Helio Teive from Curitiba, Brazil.
