Moran Gilat, PhD

Assistant Professor at KU Leuven

Location: Leuven Belgium

Moran Gilat is a tenure track assistant professor in the department of rehabilitation sciences at KU Leuven University in Belgium. He obtained a degree in human movement sciences at the University of Groningen. His research focuses on how motor and non-motor features of Parkinson’s disease (PD) interact, with the aim of improving the rehabilitation of affected individuals. He conducted doctoral research at the University of Sydney, where he combined virtual reality with functional MRI to investigate the motor- and non-motor neural circuit deficits underlying gait difficulties in PD, in particular freezing of gait. As a European Commission Horizion2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie postdoctoral fellow, his work focused on developing new rehabilitation-based interventions for complex motor problems, including freezing, and improving their standardized assessment and scoring in PD patients. For his ongoing and future research, he relies heavily on digital mobility outcomes, including wearable technology to assess gait and balance problems.
