Queensland researchers to the fore at International Parkinson’s Roundtable
Parkinson’s is being highlighted as an important health priority by researchers and funders at Sydney’s Garvan Institute today. Clearly Parkinson’s Queensland has shone its light on ‘Making Parkinson’s a Priority’ as it lifted the lid on its activities in support of collaborative research.
Parkinson’s Queensland’s President, Prof George Mellick and A/Prof Stephen Wood both from Griffith University along with Dr Trent Woodruff from University of Queensland led Queensland’s presentations on Parkinson’s at an international roundtable hosted at the Garvan Institute in Sydney today. A/Prof Wood and Dr Woodruff presented data from research being conducted in Queensland.
The forum was attended by leading researchers and representatives from peak bodies and associations from Australia, New Zealand, UK and USA.
Wearing another hat as national Vice-President of Parkinson’s Australia, Professor Mellick gave a key address highlighting the quality of Australian Parkinson’s research and shared Parkinson’s Queensland’s small but productive collaborative approach to making an impact. From little things big things grow.
Important to note that the President of Parkinson’s Victoria, A/Prof David Finkelstein, from University of Melbourne, along with Parkinson’s NSW Board Member, A/Prof Kay Double from University of Sydney, and Professor Mellick conjointly ensured that Parkinson’s Associations throughout Australia were well represented.
