Learn more by joining a one-hour PDF online seminar led by Aleksandar Videnovic, M.D., M.Sc., Assistant Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital.
Dr. Videnovic's clinical activities include diagnosing and treating Parkinson’s and sleep issues related to PD. His research focuses on the relationship of sleep, circadian biology and Parkinson's. In 2007, he was the first recipient of a three-year PDF/American Brain Foundation (ABF) Clinician-Scientist Award to study circadian rhythms and PD. His study was published in 2014 and is summarized here.
