The Gordon Research Conference on Parkinson's Disease is a unique meeting within the field that brings together scientists across myriad disciplines and from diverse backgrounds and positions around the common theme of Parkinson's and related neurodegenerative areas. The aim of the meeting is to stimulate debate, raise questions of critical importance, exchange information, network, and create an atmosphere that encourages collaboration and collegiality. This meeting will focus on creating connections between scientists across disciplines from academic, government, and pharmaceutical/biotech research groups.
The field of Parkinson's disease research has matured tremendously over the last 20 years, in large part much of this progress has been driven by genetic and molecular insights into disease etiology and pathogenesis. This conference aims to bring together scientists interested in understanding the underlying disease processes with an eye toward accelerating development and deployment of etiologic-based therapeutics.
