Alex Kerten

Live in COPENHAGEN - Feb 2020

Copenhagen International Brain Congress·22-24 feb 2020

You can learn to become a Parkinson’s warrior!

Learn to break out of the harmful habits that have been slowly forming. The sooner you become aware that you can change your behavior, the quicker you will begin to feel better. If you don’t use it, you lose it.

Parkinson patients can improve their condition

There is an alternative to the behavior of fear that Parkinson’s bring with it. You don’t have to follow that script that compels you to enter the body forms, shapes, and rhythms of Parkinson’s.

Goodbye Parkinson's, Hello Life!

Parkinson’s Disease, a disorder of the central nervous system, affects 1 million people in America and 10 million worldwide. In Goodbye Parkinson’s, Hello life!, Alex Kerten presents his breakthrough holistic technique that combines dance therapy, behavior modification and martial arts to prove that there is life beyond the diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease.

Goodbye Bad Habits - Hello A New Beginning!

For me Elisabeth, diagnosed who was diagnosed in 2013 , I defined by much than my Parkinson’s. For me, it’s a new beginning. According to Alex , I am only a baby compared to him, so I dont run anymore; I just walk. I have enough time and breath now to continue my lovely journey together with Alex, for the rest of my life. Thank you!

Denniz Kirik

Professor at Lund University
Location: Lund Sweden

Deniz Kirik, MD, PhD, is a professor of Neuroscience at Lund University and leads a research group focusing on development of advanced therapies using cell and gene-based techniques for treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, with special emphasis on Parkinson's and, more recently, Huntington's diseases.

He has been a leading figure in the applications of AAV vectors both for therapeutic purposes towards clinical applications and as tools for gene delivery in the brain to model neurodegenerative diseases.

He continues to develop novel approaches aiming at disease modification utilizing neurotrophic factors known to improve function of cells affected from disease processes in the brain and mRNA knock-down strategies that can clear the mutated proteins and reverse the pathology in these cells.

He has pioneered the alpha-synuclein overexpression model using AAV vectors.

Dr. Kirik has published over 120 papers and received over 6500 citations to this date.

He has been a key figure in the establishment of the Bioimaging Center at Lund University and presently acts as the co-director responsible for pre-clinical imaging platforms located at the Biomedical Center in Lund.

He has previously received both junior and senior fellowship awards from the Swedish Research Council, the highly prestigious Research Award from the European Research Council (ERC) and very recently ERC’s new Proof-of-Concept Award.

He has acted as associate / contributing editor for Experimental Neurology and European Journal of Neuroscience, and has been a board member and president for the Network of European CNS Transplantation and Repair.

Dr. Kirik was named the Maria & Allan Myers Fellow, Howard Florey Institute, Melbourne, Australia in 2010.

Morten Meyer

Sunday morning and we are happy to present the last speaker Proffesor @MortenMeyer, Syddansk Universitet.
I am happy to give a presentation at Copenhagen Int. Brain Congress.
My research deals with Parkinson’s disease, stem cells and the use of stem cells for cell therapy and the study of disease mechanisms.
I should be able to cover this area in my presentation and would also like to present my critical view on some of the ongoing clinical stem cell trials.
I can see that the title of my talk is “How close is the cure” - we need to change that to something like

“Use of stem cells for cell replacement and investigation of disease mechanisms in Parkinson’s disease”.

Why I join Cannabis Denmark:
In my opinion, if you have the skills, you have a damned duty to help civil society.

That's why I co-founded Medical Cannabis Association Denmark in 2014, after my own father used cannabis to relieve his cancer. Knowledge from that I contribute to Cannabis Denmark, so that we get orderly conditions for all patients who can benefit from cannabis for medical use, clear research in the area and a goal to get Denmark fully into the super league, regarding cannabis as medicin.

Gaynor /Vicki


Vicki Dillon and Gaynor Edwards aka MissTaken and MissUnderstood. Vicki Dillon was one of 42 who took part in the GDNF drug trial, that began in 2012.

She was subsequently featured in the award-winning BBC documentary ‘Parkinson’s - A Miracle Cure?’ A former paediatric specialist nurse, Vicky was diagnosed with Young onset Parkinson’s disease (Y0PD) in 2007 - with symptoms presenting three years earlier.

Vicki’s down-to-earth manner, forthright opinions, informed knowledge and personal experience has made her one of the UK’s most charismatic YOPD advocates.. 

It was at the WPC (the World Parkinson Congress) in Portland in 2016 that Vicki met Gaynor Edwards, founder of Spotlight YOPD – the only charity in the world specifically focusing on  the needs of YOPD - those diagnosed under 50.

Diagnosed in 2012 at the age of 42, Gaynor soon realised that there was limited understanding and representation for those in her situation. Having run her own PR and marketing agency and trained as a journalist, her aim and that of Spotlight YOPD - as the name suggests - is to shine a light on YOPD as a syndrome in its own right.

She was integral to a debate on YOPD day in the UK Parliament and referenced in Hansard. The rare disease status of YOPD is backed up by Orphanet  and the likes of the UK’s Genetic Alliance.

Delighted to be joined by Vicki - both here on stage and within the charity - the duo will be drawing on their connections and friendships with fellow YOPDers across the globe. With a packed schedule for 2020, they thought  Copenhagen would be a wonderful place to debut as a double act
