Van Andel Institute are holding a virtual webinar as part of their “Public Lecture Series”. This informative event will feature presentations and a Q&A session with international Parkinson’s disease experts including Cure Parkinson’s Director of Research, Dr Richard Wyse and Deputy Director of Research, Dr Simon Stott.

This upcoming webinar will discuss ‘Clinical Trials and Collaboration in Parkinson’s Disease’, on Tuesday, April 20, 2021 and registration is required by Monday, April 19.

For the millions of people around the world with Parkinson’s, treatments that slow or stop disease progression are desperately needed. One promising approach to find such therapies is drug repurposing — rigorously evaluating medications for other diseases, such as diabetes, as potential treatments for Parkinson’s. The foremost initiative in this area is the International Linked Clinical Trials, a programme spearheaded by Cure Parkinson’s in collaboration with Van Andel Institute that brings together some of the world’s leading Parkinson’s scientists, clinicians and advocates to clinically evaluate whether existing medications can impede Parkinson’s progression.

Please note, this event takes place in Eastern Standard Time (GMT-5)
