In this talk i will discuss history and current status of using growth factor and cell based therapies to repair the brain in patients with Parkinson’s Disease (PD). This will include recent trials with GDNF and our own work with fetal dopamine cell therapies as well as our planned trial
using stem cell derived dopamine neurons.

Roger Barker is the Professor of Clinical Neuroscience at
the University of Cambridge and Consultant Neurologist at the Addenbrooke’s Hospital Cambridge. He is a PI in the MRC-Wellcome Trust Stem Cell Institute in Cambridge and Director of the MRC funded UKRMP Stem and Engineered cell hub. His research seeks to better define the clinical
heterogeneity of two common neurodegenerative disorders of the CNS- namely Parkinson’s (PD) and Huntington’s disease (HD).
