[et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text”]Dr. Matt Farrer is critically acclaimed for his work in the genetics and neuroscience of Parkinson’s disease. Dr. Matt Farrer’s research team have made several influential discoveries in neurogenetics, and have been at the forefront of every major genetic discovery in Parkinson’s disease. His team have published over 350 publications in the field. In this video Matt Farrer discusses the genetics of Parkinson’s.

Advances in understanding genetic variation and how genes function at the molecular level have helped researchers identify multiple genetic risk factors for Parkinson’s disease. Matt Farrer, PhD currently directs the University of Florida’s Clinical Genomics Program and has been working for decades on research to predict and prevent Parkinson’s disease. We’ll hear about Dr. Farrer’s critically acclaimed work applying genetic analysis to complex neurologic diseases like PD, and learn how the study of our genes can unlock a better understanding of living with PD.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column]
