Alice Nieuwboer is a full professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences at KU Leuven (Belgium). Coming from a clinical background as a physical therapist, she now leads a sizable and collaborative research lab for rehabilitation in Parkinson’s disease (PD) (PRO-lab). Her team has made several original contributions to gait and motor control research in Parkinson’s disease (PD), more specifically involving freezing of gait. Alice runs several clinical trials looking at training interventions based on technological innovations for integrating cognition and motor function (dual tasking) in PD. At present, she and her team are investigating in collaboration with international partners whether digital mobility outcomes derived from free-living gait can measure freezing of gait and how it can be helped with cueing and split-belt training. Alice’s work is well-funded through EU and national grants and in 2014 she won the King Baudouin prize for research contribution.
