SPOTLIGHT

Patrik Brundin, M.D., Ph.D.

Patrik Brundin, M.D., Ph.D.

Director, Center for Neurodegenerative Science, Van Andel Institute, Grand Rapids, Michigan

Dr. Patrik Brundin is one of the top cited researchers in the field of neuroscience with more than 350 publications on Parkinson’s and related diseases. He has 35 years of experience studying neurodegenerative diseases, disease pathogenesis and therapeutic neural transplantation into people. His current research focuses on pathogenic mechanisms of Parkinson’s  as well as the development of new therapies that slow or stop disease progression or that repair damaged brain circuits. He was among the first to articulate the “prion-like” hypothesis, which describes how abnormal proteins related to the disease spread from cell to cell in the brain, causing the cellular damage that perpetuates Parkinson’s disease and related diseases such as Multiple System Atrophy.

“Defeat MSA Canada is an amazing organization, giving voice to those affected by this little known, devastating disease. This grass roots effort grew as a work of love and devotion by its founders. Indescribable grief and suffering has been channeled into positive action to help fund vital research and provide support for others dealing with MSA. It is an important and worthwhile organization and I hope to see it continue to serve more and more Canadians in need.”

Elena Fracassa, MS

“The charity remains true to its objective of supporting patients and families living with this dreadful disease, through supporting vital research and helping to network to connect families affected by MSA. This disease does not have a marathon or a 5k run in its name; the charity uses an intriguing device: a traveling shoe as a symbolic marathon to spread awareness among lay public about this devastating disease. “

Dr. Pratik Bhattacharya, MD, MPH
