MDS-AOS Basic Science School: Translational Neurogenetics with Focus on Movement Disorders

Location:St. Luke’s Medical Center Global City, Taguig City, ManilaCME Credits:0Date:Apr 13, 2023 - Apr 14, 2023

Experienced / Intermediate

Program Description

Since the first MDS-AOS Basic Science School in 2014, the MDS-AOS BSS has become a flagship educational course for young neurologists who are interested in Movement Disorders in MDS-AOS region. The aim of the course is to promote the next generation of scientists and young clinicians with interest in the recent advances of clinical and preclinical disciplines in Parkinson’s disease and movement disorders; to create a common language and generate ideas that will allow development of translational research projects by the next generation researchers in Parkinson disease and movement disorders. This course will attract more young clinicians and scientists focusing on Parkinson’s disease and movement disorders in the future.

In this year’s MDS-AOS Basic Science School, we will focus on learning about principles and applications of various scientific tools which can be used in the field of movement disorders. Invited speakers are distinguished specialists on their scientific topics. The participants could get insights and information to develop their own study ideas.
