The Stem Cell Laboratory for CNS Disease Modeling (CSC Laboratory) in Lund, has created one of the largest iPSC biobanks from patients diagnosed with familial and idiopathic PD, and associated synucleionopathies. iPSCs are obtained by reprogramming patient’s somatic cells into pluripotent stem cells. This unique technique, which allows generating embryonic pluripotent stem cell-like cells, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2012.

It is well known that around 90% of all Parkinson's disease cases are idiopathic, hence caused by a combination of environmental and genetic risk factors. Strategies to identify genetic risk factors in humans, e.g. by GWAS, have yielded important insight into the genetic landscape of Parkinson's disease. However, estimates are that 40% of the population risk is attributed to so far unidentified genetic risk factors. Our strategy to increase the understanding of genetic risk factors, and hence etiology, of Parkinson's disease is to genetically map key neuropathological processes by linkage in an experimental mouse model.
