March 5, 2014 — Your Parkinson’s Institute and Clinical Center announced today that Carrolee Barlow, MD, PhD—renowned expert in neuroscience and neurodegeneration — has become the Institute’s next Chief Executive Officer. Dr. Barlow is the second Chief Executive Officer in your Institute’s 25 year history. She takes the reins from J. William Langston, MD who founded the Parkinson’s Institute in 1988 and has led it ever since. Dr. Langston will continue as Chief Scientific Officer.

“Two and a half decades ago, Dr. Langston and fellow Parkinson’s disease experts set out to create a better way to research the disease and care for people living with Parkinson’s. Today, I am proud to have joined an organization with such a rich history and demonstrated impact on Parkinson’s disease care and treatment” shared Dr. Barlow. “As we look to the future, it is a very exciting time given the development of new and better treatments for Parkinson’s, and the critical role that the Institute will continue to play.” She continued, “We provide people living with Parkinson’s care of the highest caliber, we are on the forefront of stem cell research, and we are a leader in LRRK2 research and genetic discovery. Our integration of clinical care, laboratory research, clinical research, and clinical trials is powerful. We are uniquely positioned to align the Institute, people living with Parkinson’s and their loved ones, and key stakeholders, including industry and regulatory agencies, in order to innovate and to accelerate the pace at which we expand our understanding of Parkinson’s and bring promising and safe new therapies to people touched by this disease.”
