headshot14.02.2017 – Dr. Joanne Trinh has joined the Institute of Neurogenetics as a postdoctoral research fellow. She completed her PhD studies in genetic modifiers of disease onset in LRRK2 parkinsonism at the University of British Columbia with Prof. Dr. Matthew Farrer (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27692902). Her passion for identifying factors that influence onset age of Parkinson disease has led her to join the ‘Reduced Penetrance in Hereditary Movement Disorders – ProtectMove’ DFG Research Unit. She aspires to strengthen the research unit with her expertise in genetics and genomics of penetrance modifiers. We are enthusiastic to have her on the team!
