Parkinson’s and Genetics: unlocking the next generation of treatments
Thanks to advances in science we have made huge advances in Parkinson’s research. Over the last 20 years we have begun unravelling its origins. And we are getting closer than ever to finding effective treatments that will slow its inexorable progress, or even stop it in its tracks.
Researchers have discovered key genes linked to a risk of developing Parkinson’s, but how will genetics help us develop new and better treatments?
In this lecture we’ll hear from our researchers about:
Rare changes to our genes that can cause the condition
How genetics research has progressed in other neurological conditions and how we can emulate this for Parkinson’s
The different areas of treatments that are emerging in the field of genetics
Join us to hear how this area of research is driving us towards a new era of treatment which could help people take control of their Parkinson’s in our lifetime.
