Udall Center for Parkinson’s Disease Research to host 5th annual symposium
The 5th annual U-M Udall Center of Excellence for Parkinson’s Disease Research Symposium will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 4 from 8:30 a.m. – noon in the Biomedical Sciences Research Building (BSRB) – Kahn Auditorium. A complementary luncheon will follow the symposium.
The symposium will be headlined by the internationally recognized researcher Bernard Balleine, Ph.D., from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. As head of the Decision Neuroscience Laboratory in the School of Psychology at UNSW, his research focuses on the neural mechanisms of decision-making, which is often impaired in those with neurodegenerative disorders. The title of his talk is “Dual Striatal Circuits Mediate Flexible Action Control in Health and Disease.”
In addition to Balleine’s keynote address, there will be talks from a variety of researchers pursuing research on PD and related diseases from U-M, the Van Andel Research Institute and Michigan State University.
Registration is required. Register online by Aug. 23.
