Who can take part in research?

Researchers need both people with and without Parkinson's to take part in research. Without volunteers, progress in Parkinson’s research would be impossible. 

How do I take part?

Our Take Part Hub above allows you to search for local research. Simply type in your postcode to find a range of opportunities. Once you've found something interesting just contact the research centre nearest you, their details are at the bottom of the project page.

The information we provided is only for your consideration. We recommend you contact the research teams who can discuss their research with you and recruit you.

How do I find out more?

Anyone who is considering taking part in research should speak to the professionals managing the project for more in-depth information. Contact details can be found on the project page.

If you have any queries, qualms or concerns please do ask the researchers. They should make your research visit as easy and enjoyable as possible.
