Roger Barker, University of Cambridge, UK

Roger Barker is the Professor of Clinical Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge and Consultant Neurologist at the Addenbrooke's Hospital Cambridge, PI in the MRC-Wellcome Trust Stem Cell Institute in Cambridge  and  Director of the UK Regenerative Medicine Platform in pluripotent and engineered cells.

For the last 25 years he has run research that seeks to better define the clinical heterogeneity of two common neurodegenerative disorders of the CNS- namely Parkinson's (PD) and Huntington's disease (HD)- and the neurobiological basis of this. This has helped him define the best way by which to take new therapies into the clinic including drug repurposing, gene and cell based trials for patients with these conditions.
