Garvan Institute receives grant to research role of long non-coding RNAs in Parkinson's disease
Date:10/2/2013

ncover correlations between long non-coding RNAs and Parkinson's disease."

"Ultimately, we need much better insight into the mechanisms at work in order to find biomarkers for the disease and create better therapies for the future."

Associate Professor Antony Cooper views the process as a voyage of discovery. "It will be very informative to see what is going on in human brains at this level of magnification in healthy people as well as those who are ill," he said.

"For many years, we have been able to see that genetics plays a role in Parkinson's disease, but in 80-90% of cases the genetic connection has been very complex this project has the real potential to provide some clarity on the genetic contribution to this disease."

"It is very hard to study human brains, as you obviously can't dissect a brain while someone is alive. I am hopeful that this project will give us a new kind of window into the brain, a window opened by new technologies and the insights they allow."

The hope of all parties is that this project could ultimately lead to breakthroughs for screening and early diagnosis of Parkinson's disease as well as new therapies for patients.
