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:
- Physician visits and physical examinations
- Laboratory services
- Study medication
Current Clinical Trials
Find information about our current clinical trials via the links below.

The Parkinson's disease and Movement Disorders Center is also very excited about the formation of an electronic patient "repository" 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 repository. Participation is entirely voluntary.
For more information about participation in clinical trials, please contact the Movement Disorders Research Office by phone at 312-503-0755, by fax 312-503-0787 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Feinberg Clinical Trials
Scientists at the medical school are conducting hundreds of clinical trials daily. Learn more about all our work via the Feinberg Office of Research Clinical Trials page. Search for trials by disease or condition.

Feinberg is not a site of care. PDMDC faculty see patients through our affiliated clinic.
