The 2012 Seminar Call Series on Hot Topics in Parkinson's disease kicked off last week. Our inaugural session focused on the topic "How Do We Get to Cures and Clinical Trials 101," led by Mark Frasier, PhD, Vice President of Research Programs at The Michael J. Fox Foundation and David Weiner, MD, Scientific Advisory Board Member for The Michael J. Fox Foundation.Dr. Frasier introduced the Foundation’s role in moving research forward, and Dr. Weiner offered a detailed illustration of the drug development pipeline in Parkinson’s disease and how clinical trials – and the role that the PD Community plays in them – are necessary to accelerate new drugs out of the lab and onto our pharmacy shelves.
