Dr Sara Houston has been invited by the Arts and Science Partners research team at Brown University, Rhode Island to take part in their forum for those who create, research, and regulate within arts and science communities.

Dr Houston will be giving a speech on her research on dance for people with Parkinson’s, as well as taking part in a discussion on proposals for an arts and science collaborative panel. Brown University’s own research project investigates the use of dance and music as an art form to complement the biomedical interventions used to address neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and autism.

The forum aims to encourage dialogue between participants to further explore the relationship between the arts and science. In addition to open up channels for further research, Brown intends that this forum will lead to the establishment of an Arts/Science collaborative council, bridging the two fields.
