The MDS-Africa Online Course for Basic Science will focus on integrating fundamental preclinical models, neuro-circuits and pathophysiology into modern scientific tools as well as indigenous therapies used in the management of Parkinson’s disease.
The aim of this course is to train research oriented early- and mid-career scientists and clinicians that are interested in recent advances in Parkinson’s disease. This course will serve as a refresher for neuroscientists and neurologists. It will emphasize the need to promote translational research using multidisciplinary approaches.
The course will include lectures delivered by distinguished international and local experts in the field of Parkinson’s disease, panel discussion with experts.
