OverviewOur research programme in Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders aims to identify clinical, biochemical, imaging, and genetic biomarkers in clinical cohorts of patients that we have established in Singapore. We hope to develop a model to better stratify at-risk individuals and to manage, prevent and reduce PD progression. We are also involved in health services research to identify factors that influence healthcare costs and factors that can further improve quality of life for our patients. These research efforts involved multiple collaborators from both local and international clinical and academic institutions, industries, professional bodies and patient care organisations (e.g. MJ Fox Foundation, American Parkinson’s Foundation). We aim to identify early disease biomarkers and novel targets and to conduct experimental therapeutic studies with the hope of bringing these targets to potential clinical trials. The following platforms are incorporated within our team to meet above aims:
