The School of Health Professions are pleased to invite you to their November lecture entitled 'Vestibular Rehabilitation' by Dr Marousa Pavlou of Kings College London.

Dr Pavlou is a Lecturer of Physiotherapy and a member of the Centre of Human and Aerospace Physiological Sciences (CHAPS).

She obtained her PhD from Imperial College London (Dept. of Neuro-otology) under the supervision of Professors Adolfo M. Bronstein and Michael Gresty. Her PhD as well as her post-doctoral research focuses on the assessment and rehabilitation of the physiological mechanisms operating in human balance primarily in patients with vestibular disorders and older adult fallers.

Her current work focuses on how the human sensory and motor systems react, interact, and adapt to everyday as well as novel challenges in health and disease, and how these responses are affected by the ageing process. The aim is to apply this knowledge to develop advances in vestibular, falls, and stroke rehabilitation that will provide further improvements in symptoms, postural stability, quality of life, and falls risk compared to current practice.

Everybody is welcome to attend this lecture - no booking required, just turn up on the day!
