Moran Gilat, PhD

Assistant Professor at KU Leuven

Location: Leuven Belgium

Moran Gilat, PhD is Assistant Professor at the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences at KU Leuven University in Belgium working towards improved care for people with Parkinson’s disease. He investigates how motor and non-motor symptoms interact with the aim to advance the rehabilitation of those affected. During his PhD at the University of Sydney in Australia, he combined virtual reality with magnetic resonance imaging to investigate the motor-, cognitive-, and emotional neural circuit impairments underlying freezing of gait in PD. As a European Commission postdoctoral fellow he next joined KU Leuven University to put theory into practice by developing new physiotherapy-based interventions for treating FOG, and deriving new methods for improving its standardized assessment. He introduced open-source software that is now widely adopted in the field to score FOG. For these reasons he was appointed as one of the workgroup leaders at the international FOG workshop in Jerusalem, 2023.
