Research in Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders is an ongoing activity. Research helps in improving the treatment outcomes, understanding patients and family requirements, looking for novel therapies, recognizing the underlying cause with primary goal to improve the quality of life and outcome. Researchers need both people with and without Parkinson’s to take part in research. Without volunteers, progress in Parkinson’s research would be impossible.

Anyone who is considering taking part in research should speak to the professionals managing the project for more in-depth information.
