Michael J Fox webinar

This month’s free webinar from the Michael J Fox Foundation offers a look at the latest stem cell research and its use in understanding Parkinson’s disease


The next instalment in the free Third Thursdays webinar series by the MJ Fox Foundation on 18 February at 12pm ET will discuss the different types of stem cells (embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells), and how they are being used by researchers to better understand Parkinson’s and develop new treatments.

Featuring a panel of experts, the webinar will be moderated by well-respected broadcast journalist and person with Parkinson’s, Dave Iverson, who also hosts the Portland Countdown podcasts.

The one-hour informative session is part of a series of free webinars, which takes place every third Thursday of the month. It’s free to register and join in the live webinar here.

Audience members can submit their own questions to the experts while the discussion is happening in real time. And if you can’t make it for the live broadcast, catch the recording in the library archive here.
