Professor Anette Schrag
Consultant neurologist and Professor of Clinical Neurosciences
UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology
Professor Schrag’s research focusses on Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders. This includes studies to improve early diagnosis of Parkinson's, clinical trials to reduce its symptoms and progression, and the development of better tools for the measurement of symptoms.
She is currently Principal Investigator of several research projects, including
- a trial of antidepressants in Parkinson’s disease (ADepT-PD)
- a study to explore the mechanisms and experiences of Anxiety in Parkinson’s disease (AND-PD)
- a study to identify risk markers of Parkinson’s in the general population (Predict-PD;)
- a multicenter study to develop and test a facilitated self-management tool for patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD-Care).
Professor Anette Schrag will talk about her research work, with particular focus in the trial that she is currently running, Adept PD. The trial is looking at medication to potentially reduce the impact of low mood and anxiety in Parkinson’s.
