报告人简介:

Carolyn Sue is currently appointed as Head of the Department of Neurogenetics at Royal North Shore Hospital, University of Sydney. She is the inaugural Professor in Neurology at Royal North Shore Hospital. Dr Sue trained in the study of movement disorders with Professor John Morris and continued her post-doctoral studies at Columbia University, New York, USA. Dr Sue’s research interests are focused on two main areas: the role of mitochondrial function in neurodegenerative disease and the genetics of movement disorders. Dr Sue founded the Familial Parkinson’s Disease Research Clinic at Royal North Shore Hospital, and has coordinated national collaborative genetic studies in Parkinson’s disease. Most recently, her research group has established the use of patient derived stem cell models to investigate the pathophysiology underlying Parkinson’s disease.

Dr Sue is a Founding Director of the Australian Mitochondrial Disease Foundation and has served as Treasurer for the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society (Asian Oceanic Section). She is also appointed to the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society’s Task Force on Genetic Nomenclature in Movement Disorders and is the current Chair of the Clinical Trials and Research Group for the Movement Disorder Society of Australia and New Zealand.
