MDS-ES Basic Science of Movement DisordersThe overall aim of this course is to teach young research-oriented neurologists and neuroscientists about fundamental mechanisms underlying movement disorders. The course participants will learn about clinical and genetic characteristics, preclinical models and pathophysiological foundations of movement disorders and their therapies. An important goal is to update clinical neurologists and neuroscientists on the forefront and the latest developments of research of movement disorders. The course will hopefully engage young neurologists and neuroscientists into research on Movement Disorders and promote translational research involving multidisciplinary approaches. The course mainly consists of lectures by international experts on Parkinson's disease and movement disorders. Local experts will serve as chairs to facilitate discussion after each lecture. There will also be a panel discussion with experts and a "bring your own research" session where course participants will present their own research projects. During breaks and the networking dinner, the participants will also get the opportunity to interact with faculty and peers.
