WEBINAR: Understanding Regenerative Medicine Approaches for the Study and Treatment of Parkinson’s
October 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Dr. Ryan’s presentation will summarize the current progress in regenerative medicine approaches to restore damaged brain regions in Parkinson’s. He will also discuss patient-derived stem cells and how they can be used as a screening tool for development of new therapeutics in Parkinson’s. Because Ryan’s work involves a model made from Parkinson’s patient cells, he hopes his discoveries will be easier to move to the clinic to help treat patients, compared with animal models of drug discovery.
