Jeanne Loring to Join International Parkinson's Research Group

Jeanne Loring, professor at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI), has been invited to join an elite collaborative group of researchers working toward development of cell replacement therapies for Parkinson’s disease. She will attend the next meeting of the group, called G-Force PD, this May in Kyoto, Japan.

G-Force PD was founded in 2006 to enable researchers worldwide to navigate the scientific and regulatory paths to clinical trials for dopamine neuron replacement therapy.

Loring joins the four other members of G-Force PD as the representative for the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM). The other members are Roger Barker of the University of Cambridge (United Kingdom), Malin Parmar of Lund University (Sweden), Jun Takahashi of Kyoto University (Japan) and Lorenz Studer of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (United States). Research programs by G-Force PD members are funded by grants from Transeuro (EU), Neurostemcellrepair (EU), MSKCC/NYSTEM (NY, USA), CiRA (Japan) and CIRM (CA, USA).
