Grand Challenges in Parkinson's Disease

Genes and Pathways

Grand Challenges in Parkinson’s Disease: Genes and Pathways brought together hundreds of scientists, clinicians, people with Parkinson’s and caregivers to explore the latest in Parkinson’s disease research. This year’s theme focused on the role of genetics in Parkinson’s, particularly how certain genes and pathways contribute to disease pathogenesis and how they can be targeted for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. For the third year, VARI and The Cure Parkinson’s Trust hosted Rallying to the Challenge, a meeting for people with Parkinson’s, advocates and caregivers that explores how the Parkinson’s community can impact and accelerate research.

Grand Challenges in Parkinson's Disease has wrapped for 2016. Stay tuned for more information on the 2017 symposium! For questions, please contact Kim Cousineau at Kim.Cousineau@vai.org.
