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.

Public lecture: The autophagy signaling network, c-‐myc and pathology: don't mess with the cell cycle!
18 April 2013
You are invited to a public lecture by Francesco Cecconi, an eminent scientist in the field of autophagy and neurodegeneration, on Thursday the 25th of April at 17:00, in the lecture theatre of 33 Queen Square, University College Hospital London, WC1N. The lecture will be followed by a general discussion with drinks and food.
The event is arranged by the Autophagy in London special interest group. Please contact Michelangelo Campanella for any additional information.
