Researchers develop a blood test to identify individuals at risk of developing Parkinson’s disease

Clinical Neurology Research

Research carried out at the University of Oxford has led to the development of a new blood-based test to identify the pathology that triggers Parkinson’s disease before the main symptoms occur. This could allow clinicians to screen for those individuals at high risk of developing the disease and facilitate the timely introduction of precision therapies that are currently at clinical trial stage.

Finnish Ambassador visits our Department

Clinical Neurology Research Teaching

NDCN hosted a networking event with a delegation from the Finnish embassy and a group of University of Oxford students from Finland.

Wearable sensors provide early detection of progression in Parkinson’s Disease

Clinical Neurology Research

A team of researchers from the University of Oxford has shown for the first time that it is possible to track the progression of Parkinson’s Disease accurately using specially trained machine learning algorithms to analyse data derived from sensor devices worn by patients.

Gene therapy opens new possibilities for treating chronic pain

Clinical Neurology Research

Our researchers have shown the potential of a new gene therapy approach to silence human sensory neurons as a means of treating persistent pain. Many current drugs for chronic pain are highly addictive, which makes it important to discover new alternatives.

Six New Professors
