Parkinson's Disease Research

The Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Center at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine conducts a large number of research projects. The scope of research projects ranges from studies of potential neuroprotective agents for Parkinson's disease (medications that can slow progression of the disease), to novel treatment options to improve the control of PD symptoms, to investigating the role of physical therapy and other non-pharmacological interventions in the management of PD. We actively collaborate with basic scientists in the university to bring their discoveries to the clinical setting, as well as our peers in the field of movement disorder research.
