On Monday, October 17, 2022, ONDRI co-lead Dr. Mario Masellis, will present “Understanding heterogeneity in neurodegenerative diseases: the Ontario Neurodegenerative Disease Research Initiative” to attendees of the Canadian Open Parkinson Network (C-OPN’s) General Assembly.

ONDRI researchers have published many studies based on data from ONDRI’s Foundational Study, which highlight how heterogeneously neurodegenerative diseases present. These have included, among others, “Small and Large Magnetic Resonance Imaging–Visible Perivascular Spaces in the Basal Ganglia of Parkinson’s Disease” by Ramirez J, Berberian SA et al, and “Parkinson’s Disease, NOTCH3 Genetic Variants, and White Matter Hyperintensities” by Ramirez J, Dilliott A, et al.

In his talk, Dr. Masellis will review how these observations are leading to new personalized approaches to the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.
