The Gala Dinner at The Danville Concours d'Elegance is a lovely evening at the Blackhawk Auto Museum for cocktails, dinner, and entertainment. This year's event features a presentation by special guest, Linda Ronstadt, with her personal story: My Life in Music and Living with Parkinson's. All proceeds from this wonderful event will be donated to the Parkinson's Institute & Clinical Center. Attending events like this helps us continue to change the lives of those living with Parkinson's in our community.

Transportation from the Parkinson’s Institute & Clinical Center will be provided for those attending the Gala Dinner. Please contact the event manager, Nick Mourlam, to reserve your spot or if you have any questions at (408) 542-5637 or NMourlam@thePI.org. We hope to see you there!


 

$1.9 million grant from CIRM for research 

      

The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine has made a $1.9 million grant to the Institute for Dr. Birgitt Schuele, MD, Associate Professor, Program Director of Gene Discovery and Stem Cell Modeling to study the effects of downregulation of a key protein implicated in Parkinson’s disease as a potential novel gene therapy approach. “Alpha-synuclein has been a leading target since its discovery in 1997 as a Parkinson’s gene and the observation that alpha-synuclein is a main  neuropathological hallmark of Parkinson’s, called Lewy bodies can now be studied with this grant,” says Dr. Schuele.

 UCB Collaborates on Parkinson’s Insight Project

We are excited about our collaboration with UCB, developers of Neupro® (rotigiotine transdermal system), a 24 hour time release patch which provides people with Parkinson’s continuous and stable delivery of their medication. UCB is working with us on our Parkinson’s Insight project to advance the understanding of medications used to treat Parkinson’s outside of a controlled clinical setting. Ideally, this study will help us deliver optimal healthcare for people living with Parkinson’s.
