Michele Hu speaks at the Annual Parkinson's UK Flagship Lecture at the Royal Institution.

On 6 November 2014 Dr Michele Hu from the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences and Dr Alistair Noyce from UCL gave presentations about the search for biomarkers, stratification and how this could lead to more bespoke treatments for Parkinson’s.

The speakers were joined by the newly appointed Parkinson's UK Director of Research and Innovation, Dr Arthur Roach, for a Q&A session after the talks. Colin Cheesman, a Parkinson's UK trustee, gave closing remarks.

The lecture was attended by around 300 people, largely those affected by Parkinson's but also students and other supporters of the charity.

“Thank you so much for a fascinating evening yesterday. It was really exciting to hear what kind of projects our fund raising is supporting. All the speakers were excellent and took great trouble to make the talks clear and informative and the final speaker giving a patient's view was very moving.”
