The Preventive Neurology Unit brings together an expert team to carry out revolutionary new research into dementia, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson’s Disease. Their work includes investigating causal pathways, genetic and environmental factors; creation of novel clinical cohorts and development of new tests; and exploring whether simple interventions can prevent or delay the onset of these disorders.
The Unit was formed in 2017 following investment from Barts Charity and has grown rapidly within the Wolfson Institute. Substantial additional funding has been awarded from the NIHR, MRC, UK MS Society, Parkinson’s UK, NMSS, Cure Parkinson’s, BMA Foundation and the Aligning Science Across Parkinson’s Initiative. Established collaborations include GP2, IPDGC, 23andMe UCL, and Imperial College.
