Date: May 14, 2007 (Monday)
Time: 10 a.m.
Theme: Neurodegeneration: Parkinson's disease
Module: Overview
Session: Genes and Parkinson's Disease
Instructor: Dawson
Description: There are now several genes that are associated with early onset Parkinson's Disease. This session will overview these genes and discuss what these molecules tell us (if anything) about the many cases that do not have an obvious genetic basis.
