Grand Challenges in Parkinson's Disease

Registration is now closed. For questions, please contact Kim Cousineau via email here.

Grand Challenges in Parkinson’s Disease brings together hundreds of scientists, clinicians and people with Parkinson’s to explore the latest Parkinson’s disease research. The theme for 2020 is When and How Does Parkinson’s Start?, which will focus on the origins and development of Parkinson’s, from potential triggers through the early symptoms and stages of the disease.

Van Andel Institute and The Cure Parkinson’s Trust are thrilled to once again host Rallying to the Challenge, a meeting designed for and by people with Parkinson’s, advocates and care partners that delves into how the Parkinson’s community can impact and accelerate research.

In the interest of everyone’s safety, the Grand Challenge in Parkinson's Disease Scientific Organizing Committee has decided to adopt a virtual format for the 2020 symposium and meeting. With this conversion to a virtual meeting, the symposium agenda will now be split between three partial days, Wednesday, Sept. 23, Thursday, Sept. 24 and Friday, Sept. 25, to facilitate audience participation across several time zones.

Please note, all times are listed in the U.S. Eastern time zone.

This symposium is also now free for participants to attend.

For questions or to be added to our mailing list, please contact Kim Cousineau via email here.
