Parkinson’s Disease: Genetics, Disease Mechanisms and Novel Therapeutic Targets

Parkinson’s Disease: Genetics, Disease Mechanisms and Novel Therapeutic Targets

Over the past two decades genetic studies have uncovered rare mutations that are causative for Parkinson’s Disease (PD) as well as more common mutations that are associated with increased risk for the disease.  These studies have altered our thinking about a disease that was once considered largely nongenetic in nature and have led to new insights into underlying disease mechanisms.  In addition, the identification of PD-associated genes has led to the development of new disease models with greater relevance to the human condition.  

In this webinar we will hear from four leading researchers in the PD field who will offer their perspectives on what we have learned from PD genetics, how it has shaped our understanding of disease biology, and whether it has brought us closer to valid drug targets and new treatments.
