Additional information

My name is John T. Slevin; I have appointments at the UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital and Lexington VA Medical Center where I specialize in the evaluation of disorders of movement. My clinical research interests center on Parkinson's disease and currently include several industry-sponsored clinical drug trials of promising new anti-Parkinson medications and NIH-funded translational research. I am director of Clinical Research at the UK Parkinson’s Disease Research Center of Excellence, the UK Holsinger Parkinson’s Disease Professor of Neuroscience, and Lexington VA Center Director of the VA National Parkinson’s Disease Consortium. My research laboratory is engaged in the study of molecular mechanisms of epileptogenesis. In this capacity, I hold the Robert & Jeanne Nyere Epilepsy Research Professorship. I have authored over 200 abstracts, book chapters and research articles. A member of several professional research and clinical national societies, I am an elected Fellow of the American Academy of Neurology and member of the American Neurological Association.
