Parkinson's Awareness Week

Save the date for Parkinson's Awareness Week 2017

People with Parkinson's need a breakthrough and we won't wait any longer. That’s why this Parkinson's Awareness Week we’re asking the public to support our research. Only with your support can we develop better treatments, faster.

The last significant drug discovery for Parkinson's was over 50 years ago. We know Parkinson's drugs aren’t good enough. They don't stop, slow down or reverse the condition or its effects. They can only mask some symptoms for a time – and they can have distressing side effects.
