I Ask This Of You!

I have Parkinson's diseases and thought it would be nice to have a place where the contents of updated news is found in one place. That is why I began this blog.

I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible.

I am not responsible for it's contents. I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish.

This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.

Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns.

Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. I will not accept any information about Herbal treatments curing Parkinson's, dementia and etc. It will go into Spam.

This is a free site for all with no advertisements.

Thank you for visiting!

Parkinson Canada Research Event & Annual General Meeting

May 26, 2017

Dr. Scott Ryan Presents

Understanding Stem Cell Based Models of Parkinson’s Disease

With funding from the Pedaling for Parkinson’s New Investigator Award from Parkinson Canada’s Research Program Dr. Ryan at the University of Guelph is honing in on a group of proteins that turn cell survival signaling networks in the brain on and off. He is concentrating on the balance between cell generation and degeneration, and on finding ways to reverse the latter. Ryan uses a stem cell model of Parkinson’s disease derived from the skin of a patient with a familial form of Parkinson’s. By working with a drug discovery and development group, Ryan hopes to test different compounds on the model, to find one that will turn the pro-survival signaling network back on. He hopes his discoveries will apply to both familial forms of Parkinson’s disease and non-familial, or sporadic, forms - something that runs in his own family.
