Podcast: Update on Stem Cell Therapies for Parkinson’s Disease

Research on stem cells and Parkinson’s can unlock new learnings about disease pathways and develop potential treatments, yet with much possibility there’s more work that remains to determine safety and efficacy. Our Senior Vice President of Research Programs, Brian Fiske, PhD, moderates a conversation with Claire Henchcliffe, MD, DPhil, professor of neurology at Weill Cornell Medical College and Julia Kaye, PhD, scientific program leader at the Center for Systems and Therapeutics at Gladstone Institutes, where they discuss:


  • What are stem cells and the different types
  • How researchers are using stem cells to create potential therapies for Parkinson's and current clinical trials
  • The use of stem cells as a research tool to understand Parkinson’s disease
