The Parkinson's Disease Foundation Commemorates its 50th Anniversary with Special Scientific Symposium on Parkinson's Disease
Date:10/10/2007

NEW YORK, Oct. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- To mark 50 years of service to the Parkinson's community, the Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF) will present an authoritative round-up of the state of Parkinson's research at a two-day symposium on Thursday, October 11 and Friday, October 12. The jam-packed program will feature 43 top-notch Parkinson's professionals presenting the latest news in Parkinson's science and quality of life initiatives.

The meeting, entitled Frontiers of Science and Clinical Advances in Quality of Life, will be open to everyone touched by Parkinson's disease including researchers, clinicians, allied health professionals, people with Parkinson's and caregivers. It is being jointly sponsored by PDF and The Movement Disorders Society and will be held in the historic South Street Seaport district of lower Manhattan.

The Scientific Program Committee, led by PDF's Scientific Director, Stanley Fahn, M.D., the H. Houston Merritt Professor of Neurology and Director of the Center for Parkinson's Disease and Other Movement Disorders at Columbia University, will cover a wide range of topics including epidemiology, biomarkers for PD, neuroprotection and gene therapy. "This is going to be a comprehensive review of where we have been and where we are going in Parkinson's research, presented by premier neuroscientists in the field," said Dr. Fahn.

The Clinical Advances in Quality of Life Program Committee is led by Lucien Cte, M.D., Professor of Neurology at Columbia University, and Karen Marder, M.D., M.P.H., the Sally Kerlin Professor of Neurology at Columbia University. "With a disease like Parkinson's, where everyone's case is unique, it is crucial to realize how it affects day-to-day living. These are the issues that we are going to focus on, the issues that can make a real difference in the way a person lives," said Dr. Cte. Specifically, sessions will focus on the preclinical diagnosis of Parkinson's disease; respiratory,
