Guest speaker

Dr Daniel Barber is a distinguished neurologist and clinician researcher, specialising in various aspects of brain health, including movement disorders like Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, migraine, headache disorders, and multiple sclerosis.

His journey into medicine began at the University of Melbourne, where he pursued his medical studies. Dr. Barber underwent rigorous neurology training at prominent tertiary hospitals in Melbourne, including Western Health, Austin Health, and Eastern Health. Over the years, he immersed himself in the complexities of neurological disorders, honing his expertise in the field.

Driven by a passion for understanding Parkinson's at a deeper level, Dr Barber embarked on a PhD journey in systems biology at The University of Melbourne. His research focuses on unravelling the intricate mechanisms underlying Parkinson’s, particularly emphasising the role of a multi-system approach in early diagnosis and potential insights into disease-modifying treatments. Under the guidance of Prof. Tissa Wijeratne and a distinguished senior research team from the Florey Institute, along with Dr Lakshman Singh from Victoria University, Dr Barber delves into the complexities of this debilitating condition, seeking breakthroughs that could transform patient care.
