Current Events: Research Breakthrough in the Study of Parkinson's-related Disease

Dr. Jon Stoessl, Director of the Pacific Parkinson’s Research Centre, played a key role in a recent Mayo Clinic-led medical breakthrough in the study of Perry’s Syndrome. The rare syndrome is caused by a genetic defect and the mechanism that's believed to be linked to the origins of various neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s. Dr. Stoessl and his colleagues at the Pacific Parkinson’s Research Centre provided ample amount of DNA samples that led to this discovery. The study was funded by the Pacific Alzheimer Research Foundation and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Strokes, and is a collaborative work of international researchers.
