‘Stem Cell & Gene Therapy for Parkingson’s & Other Movement Disorders: How close are we to a cure?’
The Movement Disorders Foundation of Arizona (MDFA) will be hosting an Educational Seminar At Fountain Hills Community Center on December 9th, 2023 at 9:00am – 12:00pm AZ time with Dr. Jeffrey Kordower MD, and Dr. Virgilio Gerald H. Evidente as presenters.
Jeffrey Kordower is the founding director of the ASU-Banner Neurodegenerative Disease Research Center and endowed chair as The Charlene and J. Orin Edson Distinguished Director at the Biodesign Institute at ASU. He has been a pioneer in the field of neural transplantation techniques and his groundbreaking investigations into the underpinnings of neurodegenerative disease have made him a leader in the field. Kordower’s interests include the study of gene and stem cell therapies, disease pathogenesis including the morphological and molecular changes during the course of neurodegeneration, learning and memory, and aging. He has also been a pioneer in the field of neural transplantation techniques. He comes to ASU from the Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, where he was faculty member for more than 30 years.
This free, educational hybrid event will take place at the Fountain Hills Community Center and will be streamed via Zoom Webinar and Facebook Live. To register for this event, please visit www.mdfa.us. If you have any questions, please contact Lynette Benham via email or at 480-403-4635.
