This April OPDC celebrated the renewal of our funding from Parkinson's UK at our 3rd Parkinson's Research Day.
The day was packed with 16 research talks and 39 poster presentations with an attendance of over 160 people.
The programme included three great talks from our external Keynote Speakers.
We were also pleased to be joined by special guests Dr Arthur Roach, Director of Research and Development at Parkinson's UK, Paul Mayhew-Archer, script-writer and Parkinson’s UK Oxford Branch member and Sally Bromley, Chair of the Parkinson’s UK Oxford Branch, and member of the Discovery Cohort.
The poster prize was a joint win for Anna-Kristin Kaufmann of the MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit at the University of Oxford for her poster on LRRK2 models showing progressive motor impairment and neurophysiological changes in dopamine circuit function and Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Training Fellow, Kinan Muhammed for "Apathy in Parkinson’s disease is associated with reduced sensitivity to rewards".
