The Parkinson’s Academy presented “Cutting Edge Science for Parkinson’s Clinicians”. The meeting was a chance to review advances in the clinical understanding of Parkinson’s and discuss how to build on these insights in routine clinical practice.

Professor K. Ray Chaudhuri began his presentation by arguing that despite tremendous progress in our understanding of Parkinson’s, many challenges remain both in the short and long term. He explained that different non-motor subtypes arise from the various complex underlying pathologies of the ‘Parkinson’s syndrome’ which often involve degeneration of non-dopaminergic pathways leading to the expression of a range of non-motor symptoms from the prodromal to the palliative stage of Parkinson’s.
