Course Description: There have been considerable advances in our understanding of Parkinson's disease, which have affected the management of both motor and non-motor symptoms. Newer therapies in the pipeline are, for the first time, also attempting to modify the disease and not just address the symptoms. The biennial program will provide the latest advances in the field of neurodegenerative disease, with respect to diagnosis, treatment and management. While the emphasis will be on Parkinson's disease, the most common neurodegenerative movement disorder, other diseases will be discussed, including ataxias and Huntingon's disease. 

The meeting format will encourage discussion among the audience and interaction with the speaker. There will be didactive lectures, two parallel tracks, and an interactive working lunch. We are privileged to welcome distinguished guest speaker, Tatiana Foroud, PhD, Geneticist and leader in dementia research, Indiana University School of Medicine. 


Course Director:  Puneet Opal, MD, PhD
