The LARGE PD Study Team

A few months back, Dr. James Beck, PDF’s Director of Research Programs attended the annual Movement Disorder Society annual meeting. Among the many scientific sessions and meetings, was a gathering of the team behind LARGE- PD, the Latin American Research Consortium on the Genetics of Parkinson’s Disease. Just today that team sent us a photo of that meeting – where they discussed their investigations into Parkinson’s and genetics in Argentina, Brazil, Peru and Uruguay. They are led in these efforts by Cyrus Zabetian, M.D., M.S., of the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. Learn more about this study
