Queen Square Inaugural Lectures
9 March 2018
UCL Institute of Neurology is pleased to report on its first set of inaugural lectures of 2018, held on 22nd February 2018.
- Professor Anette Schrag (Professor of Clinical Neurosciences, UCL Institute of Neurology) "Diagnosing, detecting and quantifying Parkinson’s disease”
- Professor Jonathan Schott (Professor of Neurology, UCL Institute of Neurology) "Deconstructing dementia —from patients to presymptomatic populations"
"Undertaking translational, patient based research in the dementias is by its nature a collaborative enterprise. I have been very privileged to work at UCL which is uniquely well placed for such work, with expertise in patient assessment, genetics, fluid biomarkers, imaging, epidemiology, statistics and computational modelling; and the facilities and infrastructure to undertake truly inter-disciplinary research. My inaugural lecture was a fantastic opportunity to thank the very many colleagues who have helped and inspired me on my journey so far, to acknowledge the outstanding junior researchers I have had the privilege to work with, to outline the exciting progress that has been made in dementia research in recent years — and to look forward to a time when these advances will be translated into real benefits to our patients." Professor Jonathan Schott (Professor of Neurology, UCL Institute of Neurology)
“The UCL Institute of Neurology has a world-wide reputation in the area of Parkinson’s disease. The breadth of opportunities for collaboration and expertise at UCL have allowed me to pursue my studies focusing on improving diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson's disease in numerous fields including epidemiology, neuroimaging, patient derived outcome measures, psychiatry, cognition, diagnosis of prodromal disease states and design of multicenter trials. I was delighted to be able to thank my colleagues, mentors and students for their support in my work so far, and to outline my future plans to help improve our understanding and treatment of this disease.” Professor Anette Schrag (Professor of Clinical Neurosciences, UCL Institute of Neurology)
