At Parkinson's UK, everything we do is driven by people with Parkinson's, so we're striving for new and better treatments in years, rather than decades.
People with the condition and their families are setting the research agenda, making decisions about the projects we fund and working in partnership with researchers at every stage.
Watch our animated video about how we are finding new and better treatments:
Despite huge scientific progress, there have been no major advances in Parkinson's treatments in the last decade.
There isn't enough investment and developing new treatments is taking too long.
And that's where we come in.
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.
Fast-tracking new Parkinson's treatments
Watch Arthur Roach, our director of research in the video below speaking about fast-tracking new treatments:
We need everyone to get involved if we're going to achieve these ambitious plans.
So whether you are affected by Parkinson's, are a university researcher or health professional, or work in industry - we need your help to develop new and better treatments and a cure.
