Summer is the right period for recharging our batteries through vacations and travels. It also seems to be an attractive time to organize scientific conferences… Here are some warm summer wishes from three MultiPark research group leaders and the MultiPark management team attending the World Parkinson Congress in Barcelona.

Every third year, the World Parkinson Coalition organizes a breathtaking meeting (the World Parkinson Congress, WPC) about the latest developments on all research topics related to Parkinson´s disease (PD), ranging from molecular mechanisms to healthcare strategies. The WPC 2023 was held in Barcelona (Spain) on July 4-7.

Several MultiPark researchers were invited to present their research and participate in panel discussions. WPCs not only attract world-leading scientists but also showcase impressive participation by PD patients at all levels. The meeting provides a unique opportunity for researchers to understand the concrete needs and perspectives of people living with PD and their families.

It is a truly inspirational experience!” says MultiPark Coordinator Angela Cenci Nilsson.

And Prof. Malin Parmar presented the ongoing stem cell transplantation trial; the audience was crowded with patients and researchers.

Now, a brief reminder of MultiPark activities during the summer period:

  • Between July 10th and August 13th, the MultiPark management will have reduced activity levels due to summer vacations.
  • Don't miss the MultiPark café's vernissage "Brain in picture" to meet and mingle with patients in the new lounge with a view towards the Öresund on the 24th of August. Limited places left, sign up here!
  • Save the date for MultiPark retreat on November 28-29. External Advisory Board members will present and all Ph.D. students and postdocs get a chance to communicate their project. There will also be two surprises and plenty of mingling and networking.
  • MultiPark infrastructures will be presented at the retreat, we encourage all the managers of these infrastructures to participate and to our researchers to prepare for asking the questions relevant to your projects already today through our infrastructures homepage.

We look forward to restarting our regular activities in the second half of August. In the meantime, we wish all MultiParkers a happy Summer!
