Mission: Restore - building sustainable global surgical capacity

Mon, 2016-06-27 10:01

The import of making choices is often revealed after the choice has been made.  In global health we are often faced with the reality that there is never really a “right choice” or a “wrong choice”.   It is a series of trade-offs and in low resource environments how one allocates scarce resources takes on a zero-sum persona.

Researchers open new path of discovery in Parkinson’s disease

Mon, 2016-06-27 09:58

A team of scientists led by Dr. Michel Desjardins from the University of Montreal and Dr. Heidi McBride from the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital (MNI) at McGill University have discovered that two genes associated with Parkinson's disease (PD) are key regulators of the immune system, providing direct evidence linking Parkinson's to autoimmune disease.

Using both cellular and mouse models, the team has shown that proteins produced by the two genes, known as PINK1 and Parkin, are required to prevent cells from being detected and attacked by the immune system.
