Mobilities go on!

Summer 2015 reveals a busy time for Variamu:

  • Roxana Fung (PolyU) had a research stay in the LPL to work on the SPPAS project with Brigitte Bigi, from March to May 2015.
  • Early July, we also welcomed Chu-ren Huang (PolyU)  and Yao Yao (PolyU) at the LPL for few days each working respectively on organisation issues and on the Werewolf project.
  • In August, it is Jasmin Sadat (AMU) who is heading to Macau and Hong Kong to supervise students from the new Master of Speech Therapy at Hongkong Polytechnic University and to work with Ana Nunes in Macau about the project “Speech in Bilingual Parkinson’s Disease Patients”.

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.
