Meet the researcher - Dr Stephen Mullin, University of Plymouth
Join us in East Taphouse, near Liskeard, for this opportunity to meet and hear from Dr Stephen Mullin on genes, Parkinson's and exciting advances in drug development.
Join the Peninsular Parkinson's Research Interest Group (PenPRiG) to meet and hear from Dr Stephen Mullin, of the University of Plymouth who will give a presentation titled, 'From genes to therapies'.
"In recent years it has become clear that genetics plays a key role in the development of Parkinson's. One of the most common genes implicated in Parkinson's disease is glucocerebrosidase (GBA), and about 10% of UK Parkinson's patients carry a mutation in this gene. Dr Mullin will discuss how this gene causes Parkinson's disease and some exciting recent advances in drug development."
Tea and coffee will be provided.
