Please join us for a virtual get-together hosted by the Washington, DC and Northern VA Dysphonia Support Groups on Thursday, May 11, at 4:00 PM ET.

We are really excited to host speakers from 2 separate labs in Boston on Clinical Research for Laryngeal Dystonia. Both of these labs are independently studying laryngeal dystonia and presently recruiting for different studies. They are doing amazing work and thought we should hear about what is going on and maybe learn something in the meantime.

Since this meeting is virtual all are welcome to attend, no matter your location!

About Katherine L. Marks, PhD, CCC-SLP | Katherine Marks is a postdoctoral fellow at Boston University, working under the mentorship of Cara Stepp, PhD, in the STEPP Lab for Sensorimotor Rehabilitation Engineering. Her primary interests include: diagnostic measures of laryngeal dystonia, quantifying vocal effort, and assessment and treatment of hyperfunctional voice disorders.

About Teresa Jacobson Kimberley, PT, PhD, FAPTA |Teresa Jacobson Kimberley is Professor and Director of the Brain Recovery Lab in the Department of Physical Therapy and serves as Director of the Ph.D. in Rehabilitation Science in the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at the MGH Institute of Health Professions. She is also a research associate at Harvard Medical School, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, and the Center for Neurotechnology and Neurorecovery. Her lab’s cross-disciplinary focus is to understand the pathophysiology of sensory-motor impairment and facilitate recovery for people with neurologic disorders. The career-long impact of her work is reflected in numerous awards, including Physical Therapy’s highest honor of being named a Catherine Worthingham Fellow of the American Physical Therapy Association.

She has led or contributed to over 15 randomized clinical trials investigating neuromodulation paired with rehabilitation in neurologic disorders. She is funded by the National Institutes of Health and private foundations. She also serves as Associate Editor for the Journal of Physical Therapy.
