Krembil Knowledge Gaps in Parkinson’s Disease Symposium(event poster)
Event Date: April 24 – 26, 2019
Location: Marriott Downtown at CF Toronto Eaton Centre, 525 Bay Street
Link: www.gapsinmds.com or https://events.myconferencesuite.com/Krembil_Knowledge_Gaps_in_Parkinsons_Disease/reg/landing
Description: How can disease modification in Parkinson’s disease become a reality in the near future? If Parkinson’s disease is not a single, homogeneous disorder, can advances in biomarkers and disease modification be revised to concentrate on commonalities of pathogenic mechanisms in large populations OR do they need to be reconstructed for application to smaller subgroups of patients, distinguished by well-defined molecular characteristics?

The Steering Committee (Anthony E. Lang, Alfonso Fasano, Francesca Morgante, Alberto J. Espay, Andres M. Lozano, Lorraine Kalia, & Antonio Strafella) has put together an exciting program of world-renowned faculty of national and international speakers.
