Team at the University of Florida receives renewal as a Research Center of Excellence by the Lewy Body Dementia Association for their commitment and care for Lewy Body dementias.
Dr. Shannon Chiu awarded five-year grant from NIA to investigate changes in LBD using diffusion-weighted MRI and task-based EEG.
The Harry T. Mangurian Jr. Foundation supported grants for two Lewy body dementia pilot studies.
The grant will fund a study led by Melissa Armstrong, M.D., an associate professor of neurology, to improve end-of-life experiences for individuals with DLB and their families.
New study led by Dr. Melissa Armstrong and Andrea Kurasz published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.
Think Tanks are an ongoing tradition for the UF Program for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration. The idea – started by Dr. Okun – was to bring together top-notch clinicians and researchers to give short talks and to stimulate discussion and new ideas to tackle tough disorders like dystonia and Parkinson disease.
