Our Mission

The members and staff of the Parkinson’s Disease & Movement Disorders Center at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is committed to training the future leaders in our field and improving care through research. Our mission is to:

  • Provide innovative, multidisciplinary care for patients and families affected by Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders.
  • Promote health, education and support for patients, caregivers, family members, healthcare providers and the community
  • Conduct pre-clinical and clinical research in order to extend the knowledge and treatment of movement disorders

The focus of our research is the development of translational projects that take basic science discoveries from the lab to clinical trials and ultimately benefit patients with a variety of different movement disorders."
