Current Parkinson's drugs aren't good enough. They don't stop, slow or reverse the condition.
The last significant drug discovery for Parkinson's was over 50 years ago. Despite huge scientific progress, there have been no major advances in Parkinson's treatments in the last decade.
The science is ready, we have the expertise, and new treatments are within our grasp. People with Parkinson's need a breakthrough and we won't wait any longer.
Watch our animated video about how we are finding new and better treatments:
We're making the whole process faster
We're adopting a radical new approach – tackling the critical road blocks, filling in the gaps and investing in big ideas that will speed up the whole process and deliver treatments to the people who need them, faster.
