ParkC's 4th Annual Open Day
Sunday, 16 October 2011
Each year ParkC holds an Open Day for members of the public to hear about the research and progress that is being made at ParkC.
This year three distinguished speakers will discuss the progress being made by our researchers here at ParkC:
- Associate Professor Romoal Bucks, Director of the Lifespan Development Group, will explore our research into the different types of Parkinson’s, and address why this information is important;
- Dr Robert White, recently returned from Kings College London, will outline ParkC’s laboratory research program, which focuses on finding a way to stop the continued degeneration of neurons, and then encourage the regeneration of neurons to replace those that have died; and
- Dr Meghan Thomas, Director of ParkC, will introduce a new project, “Genetic factors impacting Parkinson’s”, that ParkC has undertaken in collaboration with Perth Pathology.
ParkC’s 4th Annual Open Day will take place on 12 November 2011. The day will begin at 10.00am with the research presentations. After the presentation there will be a bbq and a poster session where people will be able to speak with members of the ParkC team about their work.
The day promises to be informative and inspirational, however places are limited. Please register your attendance early.
