Dr Eneida Mioshi completed her PhD in Cognitive Psychology at the University of Cambridge (UK) in 2009. She joined NeuRA in 2007, and has been working on the practical impact of neurodegenerative diseases such as Motor Neurone Diseas (MND), Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) and other dementias on both patients and family members for the last 15 years. More specifically, Dr Mioshi is interested in how behavioural and cognitive changes caused by these diseases can affect disease progression, prognosis and ultimately, the provision of care. As such, Dr Mioshi has been also investigating the burden on family carers of those affected by FTD and MND, which are devastating conditions afflicting not only the patients but also those around them.
Dr Mioshi currently runs MND projects with Prof Kiernan’s group, and also works in close collaboration with Prof Hodges, Dr Piguet and Dr Hornberger at NeuRA. Dr Mioshi has also a number of collaborations in Australia (Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane), as well as overseas (India, UK, Canada, USA and Brazil).
