Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet, welcomes you to a lecture led by Gregor Wenning and hosted by Per Svenningsson.

Professor Gregor Wenning is a Professor and Head of the Division of Clinical Neurobiology at the Medical University Innsbruck.

The scientific focus of Wenning's work centres on the research of atypical parkinsonian syndromes, particularly multiple system atrophy, using experimental, clinicopathological and therapeutic studies. In addition to caring for patients with Parkinsonian syndromes and dementia, his clinical activities also include the work up and treatment of autonomic disorders.

His contributions have helped to overcome the difficulties associated with the diagnostic distinction of MSA and PD patients. The process of differentiating these diseases, which sometimes feature very similar symptoms, has been significantly improved with the help of neuroimaging tools.
