an Interactive Webcast
Now Available for Viewing!
The Parkinson’s Action Network (PAN) invites you to watch the Emerging Therapies:  From Microscope to Marketplace Interactive Webcast archive online.  On June 24, 2010, leading experts in the field of research joined PAN at Georgetown University for a panel discussion on the drug development pipeline.  This insightful discussion provided participants with a better understanding of how research is moved through the pipeline and ultimately into the hands of patients in the form of new therapies and drugs.
