Professor Roger Barker
Roger Barker is the Professor of Clinical Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge and Consultant Neurologist at the Addenbrooke’s Hospital Cambridge. He is a Principal Investigator in the Medical Research Council (MRC) – Wellcome Trust Stem Cell Institute in Cambridge and Director of the MRC-funded UK Regenerative Medicine Platform Stem and Engineered cell hub.
His research seeks to better define the clinical heterogeneity of two common neurodegenerative disorders of the central nervous system – namely Parkinson’s (PD) and Huntington’s disease (HD). This has helped him define the best way by which to take new therapies into the clinic, including novel experimental therapeutics.
