Patient-derived brain avatars to discover treatments that can stop Parkinson’s disease progression

Presentation Description
New medical research opportunities are arising with unprecedented access to live tissue from patients and healthy subjects via induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC). In this presentation, I will give a brief overview of how my lab is creating live mini human brains derived from patient stem cells. I will discuss recent evidence that genetic predispositions can contribute to Parkinson’s disease. A better understanding of those predispositions and their effect on downstream cellular pathways provides new avenues to discover treatments that can stop, or at least slow down, the neurodegenerative aspect in Parkinson’s disease.
