Professor Sue is a clinician scientist, gaining her specialist qualifications in neurology in 1994. She is well recognized for expertise in mitochondrial function and movement disorders, particularly Parkinson’s disease. She was awarded her PhD in 1997 and underwent dual postdoctoral training in mitochondrial genetics and movement disorders (Salvatore DiMauro and Stan Fahn, Columbia University New York, 1997-2000), before establishing her own research group at the Kolling Institute of Medical Research, University of Sydney. Her research focuses on investigating the role of genetics and mitochondrial function in neurodegeneration with overall goals to identify new therapeutic approaches. She is currently Executive Director and Director of Neurogenetics at the Kolling Institute for Medical Research and Visiting Scientist at the Kinghorn Centre for Clinical Genomics at the Garvan Institute, Sydney. She holds multiple leadership positions in her sub-speciality interest areas including Co-Chair of the Education Committee for the International Parkinson Disease and Movement Disorder Society, Vice President for the Movement Disorder Society of Australia and New Zealand, Founding Director and Co-Chair of the Scientific Medical Advisory Committee for the Australian Mitochondrial Disease Foundation.
