In this month's Third Thursdays Webinar we discussed reading or sequencing genes and proteins to better understand Parkinson's -- from its causes to the way it shows itself in symptoms and progression. Defining what is different in DNA and RNA of people with Parkinson's can lead to ways to better measure and treat the disease.
Scientists from The Michael J. Fox Foundation and external partners talked about:
- Technology that is letting researchers read a person's DNA, RNA and proteins
- How discovering differences and similarities across disease populations can help develop and apply treatments
- The role of our Parkinson's Progression Markers Initiative study in this important work
