Prof. Dra. Andrea Kühn

Prof. Dr. med. Andrea A. Kühn is Head of the Movement Disorder and Neuromodulation Unit at the Department of Neurology at the Charité, Universitätsmedizin Berlin. She is spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Centre Transregio “Retune” (funded by the German Research Foundation) and in the board of directors for the Excellenzcluster NeuroCure at the Charité. She finished her medical training at the Humboldt-University Berlin in 1998. From 2002 to 2007 she was a senior research fellow with Prof. Peter Brown at the Sobell Department of Motor Neuroscience and Movement Disorders at the National Institute of Neurology, UCL, London. From 2010-2017 she lead the Clinical Research Group "Deep Brain Stimulation" at the Charité.

Her research is focused on the pathophysiology of movement disorders (Parkinson’s disease, dystonia) and the mechanisms of action of deep brain stimulation in movement disorders. She uses invasive recordings from the human basal ganglia to study cortico-basal ganglia network function and the role of neuronal oscillatory activity aiming at optimizing the therapy of movement disorder patients. She is author and co-author of more than 300 peer review publications in the scope of movement disorders and clinical neurophysiology.

She has won the prestigious Dingebauer award for research on Parkinson’s disease of the German Neurological Society and the Richard Jung award for clinical neurophysiology from the German Society for Clinical Neurophysiology.
