Welcome to the Science of Parkinson’s Disease – a blog that has been set up by scientists to provide information and understanding about the neurodegenerative condition known as Parkinson’s disease.
Over the last 10 years, the advocacy for Parkinson’s disease has been tremendous and real awareness has been created by groups such as the Michael J Fox foundation, the Cure PD Trust, and Parkinson’s UK. They have generated enormous amounts of funding for scientific research and provided hope for disease halting therapies, while supporting and improving the general welfare of people suffering from this condition.
The media regularly announces new breakthroughs in the medical and scientific world, but there are few forums available for the general public to ask questions related to the science being conducted. The Science of Parkinson’s disease has been set up for this purpose.
The Science of Parkinson’s disease is run by research scientists working in the field, and it was begun with several goals in mind:
- Try to answer any questions you may have about Parkinson’s disease.
- Report each week on interesting/exciting research in the world of Parkinson’s disease.
- Interview Parkinson’s disease researchers, providing a face to the people doing the work.
- Help you to understand this disease better.
We look forward to hearing from you.
