The OPDC Research Day is a one-day event with research talks from world leading Parkinson’s researchers on topics including clinical studies, imaging, genetics, proteomics, neuronal cells and animal models.
Professor Liss is interested in age-dependent function and gene expression of individual neurons in view of their selective vulnerability to disease e.g. in Parkinson's, ALS, or Schizophrenia.
Research focusses on the dopaminergic midbrain system, as well as on analyzing cell-specific roles of ion channels, transporters and receptors (e.g. K-ATP and Ca2+ channels, dopamine and Ca2+ transporters, D2 and NMDA receptors), as their functional expression directly defines individual neuronal activity pattern and transmitter release.
PROFESSOR OF NEUROLOGY & COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE
Professor Husain's research focuses on inattention, impulsivity, apathy and disorders of memory.
He investigates why people are inattentive, act impulsively or just can't be bothered. All these problems occur to some extent in healthy people. but they can be profoundly disabling in patients with neurological conditions - from stroke, through neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson's or Alzheimer's disease to developmental disorders such as ADHD. Currently, there are very limited treatments. Understanding underlying mechanisms is therefore crucial.
