The proposed conference aims to bridge the gap between biologists, clinicians, translational and computer scientists to share the latest knowledge on complex network sciences applied to PD and to discuss future collaborative strategies. To this end we have invited some of the leaders in Parkinson’s disease to share their longstanding experience across the classical research categories of fundamental, translational and clinical research fields.
The course is aimed at clinical practicioners, clinical researcher, fundamental researchers, allied health professionals.
Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB)
Neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease, metabolomics and disease network analysis are in the focus of research of Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) at the University of Luxembourg (wwwen.uni.lu/lcsb). The LCSB fosters collaboration with industrial partners and will be a focal point for developing a knowledge-based economy in Luxembourg.
Genetic EPpidemiology of Parkinson's Disease (GEoPD)
The Genetic Epidemiology of Parkinson’s Disease (GEoPD) (www.geopd.org) was founded in 2003 by the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. The GEoPD facilitates epidemiologic and genetic studies of Parkinson’s disease (PD). Consortium members comprise 60 sites from 30 countries and 6 continents. We are sharing data for Parkinson's disease cases for close to 41,988 PD cases and over 41,505 control subjects.
