Roger Barker is the Professor of Clinical Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge and Consultant Neurologist at the Addenbrooke's Hospital Cambridge. He is a guest professor at the University of Lund, Sweden and a PI in the MRC-Wellcome Trust Stem Cell Institute in Cambridge. For the last 25 years he has run research that seeks to better define the clinical heterogeneity of two common neurodegenerative disorders of the CNS- namely Parkinson's (PD) and Huntington's disease (HD). This has helped him define the best way by which to take new treatments into the clinic, in particular cell based therapies. He currently co-ordinates an EU funded transplant programme using human fetal tissue for patients with PD and is part of a new EU and global initiative (GFORCE-PD) that is seeking to take stem cells to trial in patients with PD.
