Grand Challenges in Parkinson's Disease - Rallying to the Challenge Grand Challenges in Parkinson’s Disease brings together hundreds of scientists, clinicians and people with Parkinson’s to explore the latest Parkinson’s disease research. The theme for 2019 is Understanding Genetic Risk which will focus on the genetic components that contribute to disease onset and progression, with an eye toward advances that may lead to new predictive measures and disease-modifying therapies. Van Andel Research Institute and The Cure Parkinson’s Trust are thrilled to once again host Rallying to the Challenge, a meeting designed for and by people with Parkinson’s, advocates and care partners that delves into how the Parkinson’s community can impact and accelerate research. Rallying to the Challenge 2019: Agenda Please take part in our survey looking into understanding of the role of genes in the development, progression, and treatment of Parkinson's disease and attitudes surrounding genetic testing and data gathering. It takes around 10 minutes to complete - thank you! Understanding the Role of Genetics in Parkinson's Survey Booking for this event has now closed.
