Message from Nelleke G. Langerak, MSc, PhD
I’m a fellow at the Neuroscience Institute at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. I have a background in Human Movement Science (MSc, 2001), Physiotherapy (BSc, 2004), and Biomedical Engineering (PhD, 2009), which shows my comprehensive expertise and love for interdisciplinary research. I have a special interest in longitudinal studies of people with childhood-onset neuromuscular disabilities. My primary research in the field of long-term follow-up studies after Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy, and also work on topics related to transition problems, children and adolescents with HIV encephalopathy and patients with stroke. The first international conference where I presented a free paper was at AACPDM, Vancouver in 2006. As one of the AACPDM scholarship grantees, it gave me such a wonderful opportunity to build on an international network, and got really inspired by all the wonderful people I met and the work they did. This is what I would like to pass on to the next generation!
