My research internship in the autumn of 2018 focussed North Sea Progressive Myoclonus Epilepsy. During this half year I did fundamental research with fruit flies, which stirred up the fire to get further involved into research. However, given my clinical background I preferred to start a more clinically oriented project. Luckily, the Movement Disorders research group is diverse has a lot of expertise in both fundamental and clinical research. So, in November 2019 I will start a more clinically oriented research project on essential tremor in families.
With this I hope that doctors in the doctor's office can give answers to questions from patients about, for example, the occurrence of certain characteristics of essential tremor in their family.
