Parkinson's Disease Subject of UW Lecture Thursday


April 2, 2013 — A leading Parkinson’s disease researcher will discuss his work Thursday, April 4, at 7 p.m. in Room 129 of the University of Wyoming Classroom Building.

John Sladek, professor of neurology at the University of Colorado College of Medicine, will discuss “Cellular therapy for Parkinson's and related diseases: the potential role of stem cells.” The talk will focus on the progression and potential treatments for Parkinson’s disease and the possible role of stem cells in such treatments.
