Genotype-Phenotype Relationships in Neurological Disease

Date/Time: Tuesday, October 23, 2018 - 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Type: Interactive Lunch Workshop
Room: Centennial I

Session Overview

Chair: Buz Jinnah, MD, PhD – Emory University
Co-Chair: Allison Brashear, MD, PhD – Wake Forest University

The basic idea is to call attention to different categories of genotype-phenotype relationships, and their relevance for understanding the biological mechanisms involved, and their implications for the practicing clinician. The focus is on movement disorders, but the speakers could be changed to make the topic more broadly relevant to all neurological disorders.

Objectives

  • To describe the varied types of genotype-phenotype correlations in movement disorders.

  • To describe the biological mechanisms responsible for genotype-phenotype correlations, and their significance for experimental therapeutics.

  • To outline the clinical relevance of genotype-phenotype relationships for differential diagnosis and diagnostic testing of movement disorders.
