Podcast – Career Paths to Studying Huntington’s Disease Linked Dementia

In this podcast, Dr Lakshini Mendis speaks with Dr Marina Papoutsi (Research Associate), Dr Akshay Nair (Wolfson Clinical Fellow) and doctoral student Lauren Byrne, who are all based at The Huntington’s Disease Centre at University College London.

The focus of this podcast is on Huntington’s disease (HD) – an inherited neurodegenerative disorder that causes changes in movement, learning, thinking, and emotions. In addition to hearing about the work the panel is doing to understand cognitive impairment and neuropsychiatric symptoms of HD, including HD-linked dementia, we also learn how their research can be translated to other areas of dementia research and the different career paths that led them to HD research.
