We wanted to share with you a message from David Melton, Chair of ERIG (Edinburgh Research Interest Group), and the organiser of the Edinburgh Parkinson’s Lecture.
“I invite you to watch this year’s Edinburgh Parkinson’s Lecture live and online. Inaugurated by the Edinburgh Branch of Parkinson’s UK, the annual Edinburgh Parkinson’s Lecture attracts internationally renowned experts to inform and educate a large annual audience and to review progress in the fight against Parkinson’s.
This year, because of the continuing Covid pandemic, the Lecture will again take place as a live streamed online event, followed by a live Question & Answer session where we will prioritise questions from People affected by Parkinson’s. This gives us the opportunity to reach out to a much larger audience.
The Lecture will take place on Thursday 7th October at 7:00pm
Professor Roger Barker delivered the inaugural Lecture in 2012 and we are delighted to welcome him back to give the 10th anniversary Lecture. He is Professor of Clinical Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge and Consultant Neurologist at the Addenbrooke’s Hospital Cambridge.
The title of Prof. Barker’s Lecture is: Repairing the brain in Parkinson’s Disease – Is this possible?
