Virtual Symposium – Monday, May 25, 2020



In partnership with Parkinson Quebec, we are proud to invite you to participate in the Virtual Symposium which will take place on Monday May 25, 2020. The activity is free, but registration is required.

To register or for more information, visit the event website here.


Want to learn more about promising treatment options for Parkinson’s disease? The Saucier-van Berkom Symposium is your annual opportunity to meet the leading Quebec researchers in the field.

This year, Parkinson Quebec suggests to meet:

➡️ Ms. Diana Metheoud, researcher at the CHUM research centre. She will present her most recent research work based on the link between intestinal infection and Parkinson’s disease.

➡️ Louis-Éric Trudeau, full professor and researcher at the Université de Montréal.

➡️ Dr. Michel Panisset, neurologist at the CHUM.

During this live webinar, they will explain how their research is helping to better understand the causes of the disease and develop new drugs. Most importantly, you will have a unique opportunity to ask your questions live to these researchers and professionals who are dedicating their lives to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease.

We look forward to seeing you at this webinar to discover new therapeutic strategies on the mechanism of development of Parkinson’s disease. This symposium will be held in French but you could ask your question in both languages at the end.

We hope to see you there in large numbers, from your living room!
