Background and activities
Karin Roeleveld is Professor at the Department of Neuromedicine and Movement Science, Faculty of Medicine and Health Science and member of the research group Geriatrics, Movement and Stroke (GeMS). She is study program leader for the Master in Human Movement Science. She is part of the leader group of the WE-studien, a placebo-controlled multicenter clinical trial on the effect of injections with Botulinum toxin A (Botox) on walking in children with Cerebral Palsy.
