Meet inspiring members of The Neuro community
While some neurological patients fit a typical disease profile, others are harder to define. Dr. Roberta La Piana is building a database of patients with genetic leukoencephalopathies.
For Lana Kim McGeary, whatever comfort she provides is paid back with the inspiration she gets from those facing life’s toughest challenges.
“As a clinician scientist, I deeply value the opportunity to impact the lives of patients, to work in a multidisciplinary environment and to train the next generation of experts.”
"What excites me about The Neuro is the stimulating environment and its long tradition of excellence in brain research."
“I first became interested in becoming a scientist during my undergraduate studies after seeing my father’s disease progress to a point where he was living in a wheelchair”
Dr. Rhalena Thomas is an HBHL Postdoctoral Fellow who uses computational biology to study genes implicated in Parkinson’s disease.
