Researchers, led by BRC-supported Professor Nicholas Wood, UCL Institute of Neurology, have made a breakthrough in their understanding of Parkinson’s disease after they discovered a chromosome deletion linked to Parkinson’s disease and other genetic disorders. More...
Professor John Hardy (UCL Institute of Neurology) has been awarded the $3 million Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences for his pioneering research into the genetic causes of Alzheimer’s disease, other forms of dementia and Parkinson’s disease. More...
One of the UK Parkinson's Disease Consortium Principal Investigators, Prof John Hardy, has been awarded the 2015 Robert A. Pritzker Prize for his leadership in Parkinson's genetics research. The award was presented by Michael J. Fox at a ceremony in New York on April 15. From the Michael J. Fox Foundation website: More...

A study published in Brain, led by researchers
at UCL Institute of Neurology, has shown that genetic mutations which
cause a decrease in dopamine
production in the brain and lead to a form of childhood-onset Dystonia,
also play a role in the development of Parkinson’s disease.
Department of Clinical Genetics, VUMC
Academic programmes, training and research are for the benefit of patients. They profit from the special diagnostics and specific treatments that are available at the VU University Medical Center.
It is for this reason that many patients are referred to the VU University Medical Center by other hospitals. More than half of all patients come from outside Amsterdam. This partly explains the Center’s efforts to adopt an increasingly multidisciplinary approach to care. In this way, consultation, diagnosis, treatment and result can be completed, as far as possible, in a single visit to the clinic or outpatients department. It leads to a greater focus on the individual to be treated, both as a patient and as a person.
The Department of Clinical Genetics is divided into Outpatient's Clinic, Community Genetics, Functional Genome Analysis, Genome Diagnostics, Medical Genome Analysis and Oncogenetics.
