Post Doctoral fellow
Konstantin is a neurologist who completed his MD at the First Pavlov State Medical University of St. Petersburg and his PhD at the Institute of Experimental Medicine in St. Petersburg. He is studying the role of lysosomal genes in RBD and PD.
Lynne studied the effects of early-life adversity on development at Columbia University. More recently, Lynne worked on a music and craving study at the University of Melbourne's Clinical and Music Neurosciences Laboratory. Her projects are focused on genetics of RBD and PD.
