Clinical Trials

The Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Center is grateful for the contributions of our research participants. Consider making a personal contribution to research by participating in a clinical trial. Clinical research may lead to the discovery of new possibilities in the control or the delay of Parkinsonian symptoms. All study-related care is provided at no charge, including:

Information Registry

The Parkinson's disease and Movement Disorders Center is also very excited about the formation of an electronic patient registry or "storage bank" of information. This type of storage bank holds information collected during a clinical visit and with the patient's permission can be used, anonymously, for future research studies. You may be asked to participate in the registry. Participation is entirely voluntary.
