|September Hot Topics Event: Genetics and Parkinson's Disease|
Welcome to the on-demand archive of "Genetics and Parkinson's Disease", a Michael J. Fox Foundation Seminar Series on Hot Topics in PD Research webinar event. Please log in or register below to access the recording of the webinar.
Date of original webcast: September 18, 2012 12pm ET
Emerging evidence over the past 15 years has led researchers to believe that genetics plays a far greater role in Parkinson's disease (PD) than was once thought. Today, scientists are digging deeper than ever before, with the hope of translating a greater understanding of PD genetics into treatment breakthroughs for everyone with the disease.
On September 18th at 12pm Eastern Time, The Michael J. Fox Foundation brought together the PD community for a webinar about genetics and PD. Please enjoy this webinar in which we present an introduction on how DNA and genes work, discuss the latest knowledge about genetic changes associated with PD, and answer your questions about the topic live.
