On Saturday November 21st, I was very kindly invited to give a talk on our upcoming project on skin wetness sensing and motor control in PD, at the annual PD forum of the East Midlands Research support network. With ~120 people attending, most of which affected by PD, this day was a great opportunity to exchange info with the general public about the latest developments in the area of Parkinson's research, with talks covering drug discovery, physical therapy, and assistive devices. This forum is a unique opportunity to learn from the ones who faces the challenges of PD on a daily base, so that the work we do in the lab can be further tailored to the specific daily needs of people.
A great line up of talks, a superb organizing team from the East Mid Steering Group, and a wonderful audience made for a very enjoyable day. A couple of pics to follow...
