About the Editors


K. Ray Chaudhuri, MD FRCP DSc
Department of Basic and Clinical Neuroscience
King's College London
London, UK

Dr. K. Ray Chaudhuri is the Medical Director of the National Parkinson Foundation International Centre of Excellence and Principal Investigator at the Maurice Wohl Clinical Neuroscience Institute and NIHR biomedical research centre at the Institute of Psychiatry. His major research interests are non-motor symptoms and continuous drug delivery treatments of PD, restless legs syndrome, sleep problems in PD and parkinsonism in minority ethnic groups. 

David Sulzer, PhD
Department of Neurology
Columbia University

David Sulzer is a neuroscientist and Professor of Neurobiology in Psychiatry, Neurology and Pharmacology at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC). His lab explores synaptic connections that underlie learning as well as neurodegenerative diseases that occur at these synapses. Their work has made fundamental contributions to understanding the roles of these synapses in Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases, schizophrenia, autism and drug addiction. 

Advisory Editor

Stanley Fahn, MD
Department of Neurology
Columbia University

Stanley Fahn is the H. Houston Merritt Professor of Neurology and Director of the Center for Parkinson's Disease and Other Movement Disorders at Columbia University. He continues to be active in patient care, research and teaching and has trained over 130 movement disorder fellows, including many who are professors of neurology around the globe.

Associate Editors

Stephanie Cragg, MA, DPhil
Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics
University of Oxford
Oxford, UK

Stephanie Cragg is currently a Beit Memorial Research Fellow at the University Department of Pharmacology at the University of Oxford. Her laboratory focuses on understanding dopamine neurotransmission in the basal ganglia, control by striatal circuits and dysfunction in neurodegenerative disorders and drug addiction and is at the forefront of understanding neuronal signalling dynamics in relation to the biology of neurodegenerative disease and addiction.

John Duda, MD
Department of Neurology, Philadelphia VA Medical Center
University of Pennsylvania

John Duda's research activities include basic science investigations into the role of Lewy pathology in the pathophysiology of Parkinson's disease and related disorders as well as investigations into the mechanisms involved in the development of chronic traumatic encephalopathy.

Simon Lewis, PhD 
Brain & Mind Research Institute
The University of Sydney
Sydney, Australia

Simon Lewis is currently NHMRC-ARC Dementia Fellow, who works as a Consultant Neurologist at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, and is Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Sydney. He has a specialist interest in both newly diagnosed and advanced Parkinson's Disease with expertise in freezing of gait, hallucinations, memory problems and sleep disturbances.

Elena Moro, MD, PhD, FEAN, FAAN
Division of Neurology
Grenoble Alpes University Hospital
Grenoble, France

Dr. Elena Moro is a Professor of Neurology at the Grenoble Alpes University and Director of the Movement Disorders Center at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire (CHU) of Grenoble, France. She is also the Head of the Department of Neurology, Psychiatry, Neurological  Rehabilitation and Forensic Medicine at the CHUGA. Her major research interest is neuromodulation for treating movement disorders. In particular, over the years she has been focused in better understanding the mechanisms of action of deep brain stimulation (DBS), DBS indication in Parkinson's disease and dystonia and exploring new DBS targets.

Andrew B. Singleton, PhD
National Institute on Aging (NIA), NIH

Andrew Singleton's research interests focus on the genetics of neurological disease. His team investigates the genetic and cellular mechanisms underlying simple-Mendelian and complex neurological diseases.

Malú G. Tansey, PhD
Professor of Neuroscience
University of Florida

Malú Tansey is a Professor of Neuroscience and Director for the Center for Translational Research in Neurodegenerative Diseases (CTRND). Her research interests include investigating the role and regulation of neuroinflammatory and immune system responses in modulating the gene-environment interactions that determine risk for development and progression of neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disease. She investigates the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying neuroinflammation in age-related neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders (PD, AD and depression respectively) with the long-term goal of developing better therapeutic interventions to prevent or treat these disorders.
