How Dr. Revilla-Rondon’s research is transforming health care
The goal of Dr. Revilla’s research is to develop and test new treatments for patients affected by Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease and other movement disorders, including oral drugs, surgical treatments (deep brain stimulation), to explore methods to measure abnormalities of movement remotely and to improve quality of life through exercise interventions (yoga, cycling).
He is actively involved in research clinical trials and as a member of national and international research organizations have participated in many publications in these areas. He is an advocate for my patients and promote exercise to improve their quality of life. He has already established collaborations, conducted research work and published results with several Clemson University faculty members.
