We perform research on Parkinson's disease non-motor issues with a focus on autonomic dysfunction. We run an inpatient movement disorders rehabilitation program with focus on exercise, pharmacological, and DBS interventions.

We study Postural Tachycardia syndrome, the systemic manifestations, and associations with Ehlers Danlos and mitochondrial dysfunction.

We develop and coordinate research, clinical care, education and community outreach for the BU Center for Military and Post-Deployment Health. This includes curriculum development for cadets and medical practitioners.

We develop and study programs for undergraduates, medical students and residents in neurological diseases, and education and research training.
