Posted on September 9th, 2011 by

Dr. Owen Ross said he's "excited" about the latest finding that the seventh gene which causes forms of Parkinson's disease has been identified.  So far, out of the seven genes discovered, three have been found at Mayo Clinic Florida, Jacksonville. Ross explains the gene could be related to the inability of brain cells to handle biological stress, for example aging. Additional coverage: Florida Biotechnology News, BioScholar, Times of India, Star Tribune
