Dr Esther Sammler

I am a clinician scientist with an interest in neurodegenerative conditions and how to accelerate the application of scientific basic research discoveries towards identifying biomarkers and hopefully treatments. After graduating from medical school and working in Germany, I entered the Scottish neurology training programme in 2009. In 2014, I obtained my PhD as a Wellcome Trust fellow supervised by Professor Dario Alessi FRS FRSE on the “Signalling pathway of the E3 ubiquitin ligase subunit FBXO7 and its role in hereditary Parkinsonism”. I was appointed consultant neurologist in NHS Tayside in 2016. My interest is in neurogenetics and Parkinson’s disease. For my research I continue to work in the MRC Protein Phosphorylation Unit.
