Event Details

From Simple Tests to Tailored Treatments

Imagine a future were a single breath was all it took to diagnose Parkinson’s, or a sample of skin could determine what treatment would work best for you. It may seem like that future is a long way off, but researchers today are making huge strides towards simple diagnostic tests,  to help us provide tailored treatments for people with Parkinson’s. Because everyone’s Parkinson’s is different.


This lecture will feature Dr Simon Stott, Research Associate at the University of Cambridge, talking about his collaborative research on breath analysis technology being used for Parkinson’s. We will hear about the chemicals in your breath providing far more than just a diagnostic aid, and how they could be the key to unlocking better, more personal treatments and monitoring in the future.

Professor Oliver Bandmann will share world leading research from the Sheffield Institute of Translational Neuroscience where his team are using samples of skin cells to better understand Parkinson’s. He will explain how these cells are providing a window into the brain of individuals with Parkinson’s so that his team can identify what is going wrong and develop tailored treatments.

This event brings together two areas of research that are key to a better future for all those with Parkinson’s, and it all starts with a simple test.

Places are free but should be booked in advance.
