Unravelling secrets of the Gene in health and disease

30th

October 2022

Institute of Primate Research

About

Parkinson’s disease (PD) represents a multidisciplinary health challenge as it involves the complexity of genetic and environmental interactions. Ongoing research on Parkinson’s disease in the African region is typically country-specific and mainly clinical-based. Translational research focusing on the genetics of Parkinson’s disease is gaining importance in some African countries but remains unexplored in the lower-income African countries. This school offers an opportunity for collaboration between basic neuroscientists, clinical neurologists, geneticists, and environmental health experts so as to foster a multidisciplinary approach in research and disease management for better health outcomes.
