Lynn Raymond, MD, PhD

Professor at University of British Columbia

Location: Vancouver Canada

Dr. Raymond is a professor and movement disorders neurologist in the Brain Research Centre, Departments of Psychiatry and Medicine.  She has been actively researching molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration in cell culture and animal models for the past 15 years, with a focus on Huntington disease. Her laboratory uses multiple techniques and approaches, with particular emphasis on electrophysiology to assess changes in neuronal transmission and function, especially those that occur in basal ganglia disorders. She has published a total of 81 papers, many of these in high impact journals. Most of these papers describe physiological assessments of glutamate receptor function and modulation, as well as glutamatergic synaptic transmission in striatal or hippocampal neurons. In addition, she has contributed to studies involving observational and clinical trials in human Huntington disease. Her work is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Cure Huntington Disease Initiative, and the Hereditary Disease Foundation.
