Podcast: The State of Parkinson’s Disease Research

MJFF staffers discuss the landscape ahead of next week’s Hot Topics webinar

2013 could be a pivotal year in Parkinson’s disease (PD) research, with expected developments on a variety of fronts, ranging from genetics to the potential benefits of nicotine. It’s also the year when the PD research community will get potentially field-altering results from a clinical trial into neurotrophic factors. 

In this podcast, MJFF Contributing Editor Dave Iverson speaks with Foundation CEO Todd Sherer, PhD, and Vice Presidents of Research Programs Brian Fiske, PhD, and Mark Frasier, PhD, about some of what lies ahead in 2013.  It’s a good start to a conversation which we’ll continue on February 19th at 12pm EST, in our first Hot Topics Webinar of the year, “An Overview of Parkinson’s Disease Research.”
