Podcast: How Genetic Discoveries Lead to Parkinson's Therapies

New discoveries are deepening our understanding of how genetics influences the risk of developing Parkinson's and how we can effectively treat the disease.

In our Third Thursdays Webinar series, Moderator Dave Iverson was joined by a Parkinson's patient, a Columbia University neurology professor and the chief of the neurogenetics laboratory at the National Institute on Aging. The wide-ranging discussion covered:

  • What we know about Parkinson's genetics
  • The relationship between genes and cellular proteins
  • And ways to participate in genetic research, even if you don't have a known Parkinson's mutation
