Ask The Expert Online Session via Zoom (map)
Tue 24th Aug 2021, 5:30pm to 6:30pm (1 hour)
Ubiquitin is a small protein found in all human tissues that can bind to and modify other proteins, generating distinct signals.
These ubiquitin signals play a significant role in many biological processes and can lead to diseases including Parkinson's when deregulated or dysfunctional.
In this session, Assoc. Prof. Grant Dewson PhD, Laboratory Head at The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, will provide an insight into his research on proteins and ubiquitin signalling, and its implications for Parkinson's.
You have the opportunity to pre-submit your questions during registration.
This is the second presentation of the special five-part Ask the Expert series focussing on research and clinical science.
This series was designed to showcase some of the interesting and promising research into Parkinson's being carried out right here in Victoria that will help us to better understand the symptoms, treatment options and ways to improve self-management of symptoms.
