My major research goals are to better understand the causes, find biological markers and identifying novel neuroprotective treatments for patients with neurodegenerative disorders with parkinsonism or dementia symptoms. I am a movement disorder specialist, behavioral neurologist and neuroepidemiologist. I am committed to better diagnose neurodegenerative disorders presenting with parkinsonism and/or dementia and have participated in the development of diagnostic criteria for all of them. I am very interested in finding biological markers that could assist in the diagnoses of these disorders. I have the appropriate expertise to be able to collaborate in this exciting project.
