Welcome Dr. Martijn Muller as CPP Senior Scientific Director
C-Path is pleased to welcome Martijn Muller, PhD, as Senior Scientific Director for the Critical Path for Parkinson Consortium. Prior to joining C-Path, Martijn was Research Associate Professor of Radiology and Co-Director of the Clinical and Neuroimaging Resource Cores of the Udall Center of Excellence for Parkinson’s disease Research at the University of Michigan. Dr. Muller has a diverse research background with an established publication record in neuropsychology, biomechanics, and neuroimaging. He holds an MA from the University of Nijmegen and a PhD from the University of Amsterdam, both in the Netherlands. He performed all his PhD research at the University of Pittsburgh and was a researcher at the University of Michigan for nearly 15 years. Most of Dr. Muller’s research focused on in vivo neuroimaging correlates (in particular PET) of cognitive and mobility problems in Parkinson’s disease. Through his research in assessment of mobility problems in Parkinson’s disease he became interested in the use of wearable devices for assessment of mobility in real life. Dr. Muller is particularly interested in how to incorporate wearable technology in a meaningful patient-oriented manner in Parkinson’s disease clinical trials. He has (co-)authored in numerous peer-reviewed journals, including Brain, Movement Disorders, Journal of Biomechanics, and Expert Review of Neurotherapeutics. This is a very exciting time for CPP and we are thrilled to have Martijn on the team,” said CPP Executive Director Diane Stephenson, PhD.
