Abstract:

Forum Objectives and Program The Science and Research Forum will serve as a premier educational program for Parkinsons patients and researchers. The primary goal is to bring together participants in order to share information and learn about the latest developments in Parkinsons research. Through plenary sessions, workshops and networking opportunities, participants will learn about the latest research and discuss creative ideas for new research endeavors. Fundamental to the success of the Forum is the premise that visiting scientists and researchers can learn from each other and from Parkinsons patients and caregivers. A member of prominent scientists and representatives of Federal agencies engaged in Parkinsons-related research will provide a definitive summary of the State of Parkinsons Scientific Research. The presentations will summarize the status of ongoing research, discuss newly-released data, and address the regulatory approval processes that allow therapeutic breakthroughs to reach patients. Follow-up Report Following the Science and Research Forum, PAN will provide the USAMRMC with a detailed written report summarizing the presentations and recommendations generated by the ensuing discussions. Funding Request PANs fending request remains at the same level 4O,OOO level specified in the November 20, 2002 letter to Dr. Stephen Grate at USAMRMC. The only amendment is that these finds are to be devoted exclusively to support of the Science and Research Forum.
