MDS-PAS Translating Science into Solutions for Movement Disorders

Location:BMO Education & Conference Centre, TorontoCME Credits:0Date:Mar 01, 2024 - Mar 02, 2024

Experienced / Intermediate

Program Description

The MDS-PAS Translating Science into Solutions for Movement Disorders course will provide movement disorders trainees and early career investigators with a unique and highly interactive educational opportunity in which they will learn about the applications of multiple research methodologies to translational research, apply their scientific presentation skills, and obtain career development advice. In addition, the course will allow: clinical researchers to gain exposure to laboratory techniques, ‘wet bench’ basic scientists to gain exposure to research approaches involving people with movement disorders, and clinical researchers and basic scientists to network and explore opportunities for collaboration.

Topics

  • Basic/Translational Neuroscience
  • Biomarkers & Diagnostic Tools
  • Etiology & Pathophysiology
  • Genetics
  • Hyperkinetic Movement Disorders
  • Parkinson Disease/Hypokinetic Movement Disorders
  • Therapies-Pharmacological
