Rachel Nolan


Research Support Team Co-Manager

New Zealand Brain Research Institute, Christchurch

As Research Support Team Co-Manager I primarily work on the NZP3 study which is investigating the progressive changes in people with Parkinson’s disease over time; particularly in cognition, everyday functions, and movement. I also contribute to the various ongoing clinical trials being conducted at the institute.


My research training is in psychology. I have worked in various research settings in the areas of clinical research, Parkinson’s disease, alternatives to psychiatric inpatient care, student drug use, Bipolar disorder, First episode psychosis and research funding support.


This is my third stint at NZBRI and I am thrilled to be back working with a committed and passionate team and a fantastic research population.
