Parkinson's Disease Research & Clinical Trials
About Our Research & Clinical Trials
Medical advances in the diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson's disease (PD) offer hope to patients and families while also guiding the treatment plans developed by our team of PD specialists. That's why the Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center at BIDMC actively participates in multi-center clinical trials evaluating new treatments for PD.
- We are members of the Parkinson Study Group, a national consortium of PD centers that carries out multi-center clinical trials of new medications for the treatment of PD.
- We participate in several other leading-edge clinical research studies of new medications for PD.
- We are actively participating in a National Institutes of Health initiative to identify therapies that may slow the progression of PD.
- We are a National Parkinson's Foundation Center of Excellence, which provides us with access to funding for clinical research, community outreach, and educational projects.
