My primary research interest is in the field of movement disorders, incorporating parkinsonian syndromes, inherited ataxic syndromes and dystonia. I have had a particular interest in genotyping and clinical phenotyping. This has included an MD thesis on the role of endophenotypes in the pursuit of a genetic cause of familial dystonia, the ongoing genotyping of the ataxia population in Ireland and description of the role and cost effectiveness of next generation sequencing in the diagnostic process. I await ethics approval for participation as local PI in a multicentre genotyping study of Parkinson's disease in Ireland sponsored by Genomic Medicine Ireland for which I have been involved in protocol development for the national project. Along with my colleague Dr. Sinead Murphy, I am a co-supervisors of an MD thesis candidate in Trinity College Dr. Petya Bogdanova with whom we are looking at ocular phenotypes in hereditary ataxia. We have also been successful in 2019 in establishing Dublin as a new European Friedreich's Ataxia Consortium for Translational Studies study site. This phenotyping natural history study will provide useful clinic data for future therapeutic trials. I have published on pharmacological and surgical therapies for movement disorders. This has included studies looking at therapeutics in dystonia using botulinum toxin and deep brain stimulation of the globus pallidus in cervical dystonia. I have in addition participated as an investigator in therapeutic studies of pump therapy in advanced Parkinson's disease (local PI in the Observe Study and sub-investigator in the pivotal north American open phase III trial of levodopa-carbidopa intestinal gel). I have been active as the only Irish neurologist providing a clinical service for deep brain stimulation programming and this has facilitated collaboration with neural engineering, for which ethics approval is awaited, to allow the study of surface muscle biomarkers of deep brain stimulation.
