Jasmin Sadat will be at PolyU in August 2015

Jasmin Sadat’s  stay abroad in Hongkong is linked to two student research projects that she co-supervises together with Serge Pinto in the Master of Speech Therapy at Hongkong Polytechnic University. In these projects, the students evaluate the impact of dysarthria in Parkinson’s disease in Cantonese in a similar manner as in a current ANR project that Jasmin works on in Aix-en-Provence. However, the students do not have any neurologist support in Hongkong to administer the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale with the patients and control participants that is necessary to classify the stage of the disease. Thus, during he stay, Jasmin Sadat will meet and evaluate all the patients and control participants that were previously tested and will prepare the next steps of the data analysis for their projects. In addition, she will spend several days in Macau to reinforce the collaboration previously initiated by Serge Pinto and Ana Nunes.
