In the Barker lab, at the John van Geest Centre for Brain Repair, we are researching the neurodegenerative diseases Parkinson's disease and Huntington's disease.

We run both clinical and laboratory based research focused on determining what causes these diseases and how we can improve the lives of patients living with them.
