Anthony Schapira, MD, DSc, FRCP, FMedSci

Head of Department of Clinical and Movement Neurosciences, Professor of Neurology at University College London

Location: London United Kingdom

Anthony Schapira was appointed chairman of clinical neurosciences at the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology and professor of neurology at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and the Royal Free Hospital, London, UK. He is currently head of the department of clinical and movement neurosciences at UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology. Professor Schapira runs a movement disorders clinic in addition to a basic science laboratory. His research interests include the molecular and clinical aspects of neurodegenerative diseases, with special emphasis on Parkinson’s disease (PD) and other movement disorders. His laboratory focuses of on understanding the biochemical consequences of glucocerebrosidase mutations and their relationship to alpha-synuclein pathology in PD, and he leads the clinical cohort analysis of GBA carrier recruitment ( Professor Schapira has produced over 450 peer-reviewed publications and has edited more than 15 books on various aspects of neurology, including the textbook Neurology and Clinical Neuroscience.
