CME – UNDERSTANDING STEM CELL THERAPIES IN PARKINSON’S DISEASE: THE ROAD AHEAD

Guest Speaker: Claire Henchcliffe, MD, DPhil.
Chair, University California Irvine Dept. of Neurology
Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at 5:00pm-7:00pm PDT
REGISTRATION FEE: $35.00


Rapid advances in stem cell biology have provided great optimism for the potential for human pluripotent stem cell-based therapies in Parkinson’s disease (PD). With trailblazing clinical trials starting in the 1980’s came the realization that new sources of purity high quality cells are a critical need. This presentation will focus on overcoming these barriers, and how cell replacement therapy in PD has been thrust to the forefront of regenerative medicine. In particular we will discuss the future trajectory and broader scope of what is needed for those with PD, including individualized treatment, enhancing safety, and long term follow up.

CMEINNATE IMMUNITY IN ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE

Guest Speaker: Rudolph E. Tanzi, PhD
Dir., Genetics and Aging Research Unit, Massachusetts General Hospital East, Program in Neuroscience, Harvard University
Tuesday, May 25, 2021 at 5:00pm-7:00pm PDST
REGISTRATION FEE: $35.00


“…over the past 25 years, I have directed the Alzheimer’s Genome Project. Most recently, we have also discovered a novel role for the amyloid beta protein, as an antimicrobial peptide that protects the brain against infection. In this hypothesis, plaques are seeded by microbes, e.g. herpes viruses, and serve to trap pathogenic microbes as part of the brain’s innate immune system. We are now searching for the exact microbes (bacterial, viral, fungal) that populate the AD brain and trigger amyloids as part of the “antimicrobial hypothesis of AD”.
