Repairing the brain in Parkinson’s Disease – Is this possible?

Inaugurated in 2012, the Edinburgh Parkinson’s Lecture has become a flagship annual event for the Edinburgh Branch and for the wider Parkinson’s community in Scotland. Each year the Lecture attracts internationally renowned experts to inform and educate a live audience and to review progress in the fight against Parkinson’s.

This is the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the Edinburgh Parkinson’s Lecture. Professor Roger Barker (pictured below) 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.
