Genes and Pathways
Grand Challenges in Parkinson’s Disease: Genes and Pathways will bring together hundreds of scientists, clinicians, people with Parkinson’s and caregivers to explore the latest in Parkinson’s disease research. This year’s theme will focus 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 will host 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.
Registration will open in April 2016. For questions, please contact Kim Cousineau at Kim.Cousineau@vai.org.
