Brain Foundation grants for tremor and stroke research

Updated 6th November

Two young neurologists are among 18 recipients of this year’s research grants from the Brain Foundation.

Dr Alessandro Fois (pictured), movements disorders fellow at Westmead Hospital, Sydney, will receive a $30,000 plus GST research award to fund his research to better identify types of tremor.

At present the lack of a single diagnostic test to determine the cause of tremor can make it difficult to distinguish between diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and essential tremor.
