Advancing the Field through Research

The Parkinson's Disease & Movement Disorders Institute is a Parkinson's Disease Foundation-supported research center. We are involved in a number of studies to better under and treat Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders. Examples of areas of study include:

  • The development of new imaging methods and other tests to diagnose and monitor the progression of Parkinson's and related movement disorders.
  • The assessment of new drug therapies and nutritional supplements.
  • Collaboration with basic science investigators performing research studies on human embryonic stem cells to try to stimulate regeneration of nerve cells damaged by Parkinson's disease.
