Research events

Find out about the latest Parkinson's research by attending an event near you or catching up on a recorded event.

Due to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, our in-person activities are suspended. See more about Parkinson’s and coronavirus on our dedicated page.

We work with researchers and our local groups to arrange events, such as visits to labs, open days and talks, around the UK.

We currently have no upcoming face to face research events, but our local Research Interest Groups have been busy organising online research sessions.
