Experts come together for Parkinson's disease conference

Leading experts in the field of Parkinson's disease research are coming together for a conference this week. Key figures in the Parkinson's disease community will be descending on the city of York today and tomorrow (November 1st and 2nd), for the second annual Parkinson's UK Research Conference. It is hoped that by bringing the best medical research talents together to discuss their findings, collaborations can be formed that may lead to the development of new treatments for the condition. Parkinson's UK director of research Dr Kieran Breen says that the conference will exhibit the UK as the world-leader in Parkinson's disease research. "We are passionate about finding a cure for Parkinson's and better treatments, and supporting a flourishing research community will help us move ever closer to our goal," he said. According to the latest edition of the Archives of Neurology journal, Parkinson's disease experts have agreed guidance for doctors considering deep brain stimulation as a treatment for the condition.
